K-Gr 3–When Pink, the runt of a large litter of piglets, is pushed aside by his siblings, he's taken into the house where a dachshund named Tink adopts him as one of her pups. He learns to prefer dog food to pig food and soft blankets to scratchy straw. Simple, clear text relates this true story, and the large print makes the title inviting for beginner readers. Full-color photos record events in the life of this unusual family. This heartwarming story of cross-species adoption will have strong appeal for animal lovers. Readers will easily grasp the lesson of fitting in and being loved even when you're different.Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
