Meet the Author

Sy Montgomery

From her best-selling memoir of life with her pig to books on apes, tarantulas and tree kangaroos, Sy Montgomery has authored 17 titles on animals for adults and children.

Good To Know

In our exclusive interview with Montgomery, she revealed a few fun anecdotes:

"My companion pig, Christopher Hogwood, age 12, lost 60 pounds on his new diet and now weighs in at a trim 690 pounds."

"My first known act of Eco-Conscience: I was sent home from kindergarten for biting a little boy who had pulled the legs off a daddy longlegs. I would do it again today."
