Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Children are usually very interested in animals and this true account of a baby pig called Pink being cared for by a dachshund named Tink is sure to be popular. Pink was the runt of a litter of twelve. He was very small and had little strength so he did not get enough milk from his mother. The family brought him into the house in hopes of saving him. Fortunately, their dog was caring for puppies at the time and immediately "adopted" Pink as one of her own. Tink's brood now had several brown puppies and a "little pink pup." All the puppies accepted him as well. Pink settled in, began to gain weight, play with the other pups and even started to run through the house. Often Pink visited his real family out in the barn but definitely preferred his life indoors. He refused to eat pig food but was happy to eat what the puppies were fed. When it was time for Pink to move back to the barn, he took his comfortable dog bed with him. According to the author's note at the end of the book, he is still happily living on the farm. Throughout the book are photos matted on bright colors that add to the book's attractiveness as do the end papers that are sprinkled with brown dog and pink pig footprints. Add this book to your purchase list, as it is sure to get plenty of use by youngsters wanting animal books. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
School Library Journal
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

    A Great Story About "Family"

    "Little Pink Pup" is a delightful tale of a pig who is the runt of his litter and his subsequent adoption into a Dachshund "family." All of the photos included in this book are amazing; they're sure to attract and keep the attention of children. Aesthetically, aside from the pictures, the book itself isn't very "pretty" but I think the story is captivating enough to keep kids enthralled. The book offers a good blend of realism and whimsy.
