This was a cute book but not a great one. It was about a farmer whose pigs ran away and he was looking for them. He was on vacation with his wife in Florida and he thought he kept seeing them everywhere. He began to drive his wife nuts because he would not stop looking for pigs on their vacation.

We all misplace things and then try to find them. This book is a funny story and shows that even adults loss things that are valuable to them but not things we always need to worry about. We should not let that one thing worry us and get in the way of other things that our important to us. This will teach the students the value of their items.
