Review by School Library Journal Review
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 (c) Copyright 2010.

Review by Horn Book Review
Tiny pig Pink is in need of intensive mothering when his siblings prevent him from getting the food he needs. With the careful ministrations of Tink, a dachshund with a new puppy of her own and several fosters, Pink survives and thrives along with his canine companions. Easy-to-read text and lively photographs tell this true story. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
