Weekend Reading: The Good Good Pig (Sy Montgomery)

3 sentences or less about fascinating books that beg to be read in less than 3 days.*

Good Good Pig Cover, paperbackA veteran of adventures in remote areas with dangerous creatures, author and naturalist Montgomery adopted a sick piglet only to be amazed as he grew into perhaps  the most fascinating animal she had ever encountered. As he grew, his intelligence and personality exceeded that of his girth (an eventual 750 pounds!) and his exploits earned him fame that spread from his small New England town to features in USA Today and on NPR. Montgomery’s book is a refreshing change from the usual dog/cat memoirs and offers a great deal of humor, insight, and interesting observations about the amazing and often-overlooked pig.

*Individual reading times may vary due to factors such as fatigue, the presence of children, or beautiful WNC weather. The LRC is not responsible for books not finished within the advertised 3 days. We do, however,  guarantee that our library staff finds each featured title compelling enough that it may cause readers to lose sleep or skip favorite TV shows in order to find out what happens next.
