Northshire staff & customer favorite Jodi Kendall will be here to talk about her books The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City, and its sequel story, Dog Days in the City.
The Unlikely Story of a Pig in the City is a modern retelling of Charlotte's Web, exploring the peculiar moments when owning a quickly growing piglet in the city. You'll fall in love with every character, especially Hamlet, the pig. An excellent read to discover the importance of asking for help, and learning to take responsibility for things that are important to you.
Josie Shilling and Hamlet's story continues in Dog Days in the City, where Josie volunteers at the local animal shelter until one day a mysterious package makes her in charge of seven adorable puppies! Hamlet is a lot to take care of on his own - can Josie help seven puppies who all need her?
