Sprig the Rescue Pig

By Leslie Crawford
Illustrated by Sonja Stangl

Inspired by true events, an uplifting story about a little pig who changes his life by taking one giant leap--a picture book for ages 5-8.

First there was Wilbur, a spider’s best friend, in Charlotte’s Web. Then there was Babe. Now there’s Sprig, another winning pig who has it all, charm, smarts, and good looks - as he’d be the first to tell you.

The day we meet Sprig, he’s on a truck jam-packed with pigs hurtling towards what he senses is a grim fate. Suddenly, the truck stops, and Sprig catches a whiff of something utterly delicious. He decides he must have it.

And that is why, moments later, he finds himself taking a flying leap off the truck.

The pig-centered adventure tale that follows takes a few surprise turns as our hero explores a scrumptious new world that includes rich forest-y smells, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and a girl named Rory.

Inspired by true events, this gently humorous tale introduces kids to an intelligent, inquisitive, and very appealing pig. Sprig the Rescue Pig is the first children's book in our series on farm animals--a perfect gift for young animal lovers.
