Sprig the Rescue Pig
by Leslie Crawford and Sonja Stangl




Overview -

May Sprig help people to see what wonderful individuals pigs truly are.--Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig

A self-described "charming" pig escapes a terrible fate, and finds friendship with a little girl. This light-hearted and beautifully illustrated bedtime story has been widely praised for inspiring compassion for animals. Now available in paperback.

Things aren't looking good for Sprig, who is packed into a fast-moving truck with dozens of other pigs. He doesn't know where they're going but his nose knows there's something better out there. So with one dramatic leap, or really more of a tumble, Sprig sets out on a pig-centered adventure that leads him to his new best friend, a girl named Rory. Inspired by true events, this light-hearted tale introduces kids to an intelligent and inquisitive pig who finds his way to a good life.

The book includes a bonus section called More About Pigs, where curious readers can learn that pigs are smart enough to play video games, enjoy sleeping in cozy pig piles, run really fast, and other amazing facts. Ages 4 to 7

Recognition:

  • Sprig is displayed in the California governor's mansion in Sacramento, CA, and part of the State Library's permanent collection.
  • Teach Heart, which designs Humane Education curriculums for teachers, has named Sprig to its recommended book list.
  • Named to seven "best books for kids" lists
