Description
When Beryl the pig escapes from a truck on her way to the market, she decides to look for a wild pig family that will love her just the way she is. Away from the ill-tempered swine on the farm where she grew up, Beryl finds her notions of wild pigs—and everything else—put to the test. And with the help of the many unlikely friends she meets, Beryl discovers, at the cost of some heartache, that there just might be a place she could call home after all. From the creator of the Daisy the Duck picture book series, this first novel for readers 7 to 10 is charmingly illustrated with Jane Simmons's black and white crayon cartoons.

"Though initially befriended by a wild pig and her relatives, the pink porker is quickly ostracized from their wilderness community. Accompanied by her newfound family, she goes on a series of travels that eventually lead them to a more accepting home. Beryl demonstrates significant growth as she challenges her assumptions along her perilous journey. Simmons interjects humorous episodes through her colorful cast of animal characters ... as the misfits successfully search for sanctuary."—School Library Journal
