Sidney and Norman: A Tale of Two Pigs Paperback – May 21, 2012
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Norman is a tidy, organized pig who never misses church, and is sure God likes him. He has little tolerance for pigs not as efficient as he is. Enter Sidney, always late, always sloppy, usually frustrated. One day both pigs get invitations from God. Norman feels happiness and pride at the invite; Sidney is terrified. But an interesting thing happens when the pigs meet God. God tells Norman that He loves him, but that his goodness is not the reason why; in fact, Norman is not as good as he thinks he is. Moreover, God loves even those Norman looks down on. God also tells Sidney that He loves him--three times with no recriminations. Young children may not completely understand the message about acceptance and unconditional love coming from the unseen God, but they will be drawn in by Gerard's outstanding pictures, executed primarily in gold tones, which capture the personalities of both pigs, whose eventual reconciliation seems particularly sweet. Notes explain the author's purpose and offer ideas on using the book. Ilene Cooper
