I loved GROWING UP WITH PIGS. It was hilarious and cute, sweet; one of the best humorous books that I have read in a long time.

I loved GROWING UP WITH PIGS. It’s hilarious sweet fun, and warm. One of the best humorous books I have ever read. Going out to buy another copy for a friend who lives on a farm. She will love it too.

Loved it!!

This is a great group of short stories written in a delightful style. Takes you back to childhood with perhaps a few surprises about this young girl. A glimpse into the life of a rather eccentric family or perhaps makes you realize every family is a bit eccentric. Easy to identify if you are a child of the 40's and 50' education for younger readers. Suitable for young teens. A great read!
