A strange and quirky picture book about a little pig controlled by his human friend who meets a wild pig and decides to go his own way in life and do what he wants for a change!
I can't decide if this book is quite funny or a bit worrying View 1 comment. This is a stark and effective tale of friendship and captivity. Who is a friend?

One day, Thomas has a cousin come to visit, and Piggy is free to wander. Reading this may spark some good discussion, even with little ones, about what makes a fun and healthy friendship.

The pig lives in a big house with a boy he considers a friend, but the boy is awful to the pig and won't let the pig go beyond the fence that surrounds the house. The pig has to wear only what the boy chooses, they play games the boy wants, and the pig is left feeling bullied and sad and lonely. One day the pig goes for a walk and meets a wild bo This was unexpected. One day the pig goes for a walk and meets a wild boar who changes the pig's outlook on life and the pig finally gets the courage to leave the house and be free. Totally not what I thought this book was going to be about when I picked it up, but I am all for empowered characters and finding the courage to go your own way.
First published in the United Kingdom, this book will prompt readers to think about the price of some friendships and whether freedom might sometimes be better than being shackled by the expectations of others. From the opening pages, it's clear that Thomas has the upper hand between him and Piggy.
The boy is bossy, controlling, and downright disrespectful to his small pig friend.

Although it might seem that the two friends have everything and Piggy, with each unfolding scene, that's clearly not the case. Thomas chooses what Piggy should wear and what they should do each day.
Piggy quietly tolerates it all until he happens to take a stroll while Thomas and his cousin are playing. A chance encounter with Wild Pig changes everything for Piggy when he questions what Piggy is wearing and describes the pleasures or running wild and free.
Although Piggy must go back home, he promises to return--no doubt thinking about the freedom his new friend seems to promise him. After Thomas's cousin ends her visit and things go back to normal, Piggy has had enough and leaves Thomas far behind, moving steadily beyond the fence that surrounds the property.
Currently she lives in Eugene, Oregon, with her husband and two kids, where they enjoy plenty of rain, wildlife and natural beauty. Piggy lives in a large house with Thomas. Thomas knows exactly what Piggy needs. But a chance meeting with a wild pig changes everything, and Piggy finds out what lies outside the four walls, beyond the fence.
