March Recommended Read: Esther the Wonder Pig By Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter
When life-long animal lover Steve says yes to bringing home a pet mini-pig, he knew that adding another animal to his menagerie would be a challenge and that it would push the relationship boundaries with his partner, but he just couldn’t say no to homeless animal. Imagine his surprise, when a veterinarian tells him that Esther the mini-pig was going to grow to a full size of over 600 lbs!
The couple quickly is thrown in a life of chaos, which much hilarity for the reader. They struggle with the practicality of keeping Esther, grapple with managing Internet fame and find themselves on a purpose driven path towards animal rights activism. This is a must read; so much more than a tale of a boy and his pig, but of a pig who has the ability to change a lot of hearts.
