Summary
A little pig in a big city leads to lots of trouble! Josie Shilling's family is too big, their cramped city house is too small, and she feels like no one is ever on her side. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey--a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm. Her name is Hamlet
Summary
Falling in love with a tiny pig rescued by her brother from a nearby farm, a little girl in a cramped city house struggles to find her porcine friend a safe forever home, in a present-day homage to Charlotte's Web
