The sweet, funny story of a dachshund puppy who learns it is fine to be different from her piglet siblings. There was a different sort of piglet in the pigpen one cool spring morning. That "different" one is named Penny, and she's really not a piglet at all . . . she's a puppy. A puppy who gets longer and longer as her piglet siblings get bigger and bigger. Penny doesn't understand why she's different--she only knows that Mama Pig loves her just the same as the rest of the litter. Penny's siblings are baffled by her peculiar behavior--like digging with her paws instead of her snout, and especially her loud, sharp oink. Good thing Penny likes all the sounds she can make, and when danger strikes and her peculiarities prove to be strengths, the piglets see that sometimes it's good to be a little different!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Christina Moore puts her repertoire of animal sounds on display in this story of a new litter of springtime piglets. Mama loves all her piglets the same even though one develops characteristics making her unlike the others…Moore keeps the story moving along such that young listeners will be eager to solve the Penny-the-piglet mystery themselves. Moore’s crisp enunciation and hint of humor enliven the story.” AudioFile
“An excellent, gently told addition to anti-bullying, adoption, and individuality storytimes.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
