A little pig, born a runt, was
saved from becoming ham
on the sole virtue of being
physically malformed.
He grows up on the farm,
going about in his guileless
ways, so reminiscent of
Calvin and Hobbes. Brings
back memories of idyllic
days and all things simple.
Can pigs fly? Daggie sure
did.

Format: Paperback
Pigs Might Fly is a insprirational book too people of all ages. It can inspire you to do things that seems impossible. From the old saying,''Pigs might fly'',author Dick King-Smith wrote a tale about a small piglet named Daggie Dogfoot who overheard a convosation about pigs being able to fly ,trained hard to do just that. This book brings every animal of the farm and beyond to come together and help each other out just like we need to do for each other as humans in order to accomplish goals.

If you love the story of Charlotte's Web,heres another good book about a young pig. Although im not a big fan of animal tales i do recommend this to people who are fond of these tales. This book has more action and takes you to a view of a animal's prospective than a human. The author shows humor between the farmer and the animal's interaction with each other which will have you laughing throughout the book.

I just finished a great book called Pigs Might Fly. When I saw that Dick King Smith wrote the book I had no intention on reading this book, but I did.
This book was a lot better that I thought. By the look on the cover, it looks like a baby story but once you read it you will relies it is a book for all ages. " There is nothing worse than being the smallest, the shortest or the last." It is not fun.
I think being who you are is the theme in the story. I think even though it doesn't look good it is a lot better than you think.

Format: Paperback
The book, Pigs Might Fly was an awsome book. The book showed a lot of perserverence, curiosity, pride, and initiative. My favorite part is when Daggie, the pig, tries to fly, he uncovers a new talent of his. In this book Daggie is a good, kind-hearted pig. He shows a lot of perserverence, curage, initiative, and curiousity. I think you should read this book if you like fun and adventure.

I thought that this was a great book, I could hardly put it down. This book was about how a pig wants to fly, but can only swim. My favorite character was Daggie Dogfoot, because he was a very cool character to read about. My favorite part of the book was when Daggie saved his owner. I think that you should read this book if you like fun and adventure.

This is a cool book. This runt with dog-like feet is a very unusual pig. They call him Daggy Dogfoot. In the middle of the book, he learns how to swim, which is very interesting because pigs can't swim. Hooves aren't built for swimming. It's just a cool cool book-- the best book I've ever read. Dick King-Smith writes great books. by Sam Gonzalez (age 8)

I think this is an interesting book. I really like the part when he hangs under the helicopter, and when the giant fish bit the end of his nose. I think the title should be "Pigs might swim", instead of "Pigs might fly", because the book is mostly talking about him swimming.
