A journalist and editor for more than twenty years, Leslie Crawford has primarily written about health and education. It was thanks to her 12-year-old daughter Molly, who has never met an animal she doesn’t like, that Leslie developed an interest in writing about animals. Leslie published Sprig the Rescue Pig in January. She lives in San Francisco with her two children, six chickens, five foster pigeons, and a bearded dragon lizard named Georgia.
This children's book is the first in a series aimed at teaching compassion for animals. Sprig, a sprightly little pig, goes on an epic adventure and shows readers how intelligent and social pigs really are.
