Read in April, 2012

Sy Montgomery lives and writes in Hanover, NH when she is not traveling the world searching for Pink Dolphins, man-eating tigers or Golden Moon bears. Christopher Hogwood came into her life as the runt of the runts much as Wilbur appeared in Fern's life in the celebrated "Charlotte's Web." But there the comparison ends for, though, Christopher does indeed talk, it is in pig language. And the people who love their farms and this particular pig are wonderful listeners. Christopher's charm and zest for the good things in life such gourmet slop from local eateries, Pig Spa, wherein neighborhood children wash, massage and lotion him while he expresses his appreciation with groans of delight, and his forays into the local countryside where he is apt to head unerringly toward the new lettuce all win him celebrity and love from many. This is an unexpectedly delectable book, a book that made me want to wallow in a hot bath while eating strawberries and chocolate cupcakes with green frosting. Treat yourself.

Chelsea Ooh! This sounds like one I would like. Did you buy it? If so may I borrow? I still have to send you your Coyote book back...

Yes, you can borrow it. I found it hardcover in a used book store. Perfect condition. I will mail it when I can. I was planning on sending it anyway. It is a yummy book.


Chelsea Ok I finished it! It really made me want a country house with a garden... A strange coincidence: the author's birthday is the day before mine, and Christopher died the day after Isi died. That's a little weird, huh?
