Fantastic Middle Grade Novel!
When it comes to awesome middle grade novels, this definitely makes my list. Short and easily read, The Adventures of a South Pole Pig was a tale of a brave little pig who wanted to be more than just a ham.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The story was adventurous, the characters lovable, and the illustrations were fantastic. I fell in love with Flora and her curious spirit almost immediately. She is completely unaware of her role in life (to be food for people) and wants to become a sled pulling pig. Her big chance comes when she is taken and placed on a ship bound for the South Pole. Of course, nobody thinks that a pig is good for anything but getting fat. Flora proves them all wrong.
There is a great message of becoming all you can be, and not letting yourself be confined by the expectations of the world. Flora rose above everyone's expectations and worked hard to break the mold she had been cast into. It is a story of bravery, courage, and reaching for your dreams.
Highly recommended for children (or adults) ages 9 and up.
