From The Critics"Nature's magical and magic's natural," says a character in this refreshing novel that seamlessly blends magic and everyday life. One evening eleven-year-old Louise, who lives on a mountainside farm, complains that her brother, Willie, is a pig. The first star, which has just appeared, apparently takes her comment as a wish, for Willie disappears&3151;and the next day a white, blue-eyed pig appears. Louise and her mother, both likable characters, scheme to restore Willie to human shape.
