Chris P. Bacon is one lucky pig. Born with malformed hind legs, he was taken to a vet with the request that he be euthanized. The veterinarian, Len Lucero, took one look at the little guy who appeared generally happy and healthy and vowed to keep him. Chris went home with Dr. Len and within a matter of weeks became an internet sensation and media darling. This is his first—but certainly not his last—book.

Written in the 1st person format, Chris P.'s life has gone from almost Put Down, to an amazing journey. A must read, then a must see on Youtube!
It truely is.
I just finished reading this lovely book to my kids, and they loved it. The story is about a piglet that was born without the use of his hind legs and has a little wheelchair that helps him get around. Based on true events, we had watched a youtube video of this little guy and were charmed instantly. What I really liked best about this book, is that it lets children know that even if you are a little different from others, you can still accomplish big things and be an inspiration to others!

A well written and inspiring story, with a great message for children. The illustrations are so vibrant and amazing!! Can't wait for the next book about this adorable and inspirational pig.
