Overview

Poor Moses. His classmates are horrible to him. They think he’s weird because he can’t speak a word. Plus, the downright greediest man in the whole world, who owns a cruel Factory Farm, is stealing his only friends, a pet calf named Rita Too and ten little pigs! Deciding to risk using the mysterious gift he
possesses of talking to animals, Moses recruits Reddy, the pesky piglet, Rhode Island Red, a love-starved rooster, Dishwater, the hissing cat, and two stubborn, kick-crazy mules to create a daring rescue plan. But things go hilariously wrong!
And if Moses is found to blame, his secret power will not only be exposed, he will become a permanent outcast! And his family will be ruined!
Can Moses pull off a miracle? The odds are against him and time is running out!


Pig Out! is an important book, introducing a brand new world to children, filled with characters real and interesting, its prose vivid, clear, dramatic and funny. The story of a young boy who can't speak, but finds he can talk to animals, holds unexpected delights, with twists and turns to keep children's attention. Pig Out's information is accurate, clear, well organized. Its illustrations serve to expand the level of emotion and involvement. Grandparents and parents will regard its wisdom as perennial because the book's themes and values of rising above your limitations, sacrificing and caring for family, treating animals (and friends) with dignity and respect, helping neighbors whether they ask or not are intrinsically necessary for our social fabric. Pig Out! is about Moses, a boy who can't speak, but learns he can talk to animals. He loves his friends, Reddy, the pesky pig, Rita Too, a calf, he saved at birth, Rhode Island Red, a love-starved rooster and Larry and Herbie, two stubborn, kick-crazy mules. So when some of his friends get stolen by a Factory Farm, Moses, despite all the obstacles stacked against him, manages to heroically and hilariously rescue them. While Pig Out! is about relating to values, friends and animals and treating them with dignity and affection, the book also explores the serious aspects of unhealthy food production, environmental destruction and cruelty toward animals in the present day agri-business system of mass production on factory farms. No one reading this book can come away dry-eyed once he/she sees the terrible toll taken in delivering food to our tables.

Editorial Reviews

Terry Tallent
Pig Out! has everything kids look for in a good book: memorable characters, an engaging story with lots of action, and a rousing, satisfying conclusion. Even beyond that, this is a unique children's book. Like Charlotte's Web, Pig Out! addresses the sanctity of all life (humans and animals) and introduces young readers to the difficult choices involved with raising farm animals for human consumption, yet updates this message by raising awareness about the modern practice of factory farms and how
