Fans of Kate DiCamillo’s classic Because of Winn-Dixie will love Saving Marty by Paul Griffin, a heartwarming story about a pig that thinks he’s a dog. When 11-year-old Lorenzo saves Marty the pig from being sold, he feels like a hero — just like his father who died in the war. The bond between the two is remarkable, but keeping a 350-pound pet comes with its own challenges. Renzo will do everything and anything to keep Marty safe, but will it be enough? This honest yet humorous story about friendship and bravery will touch the hearts of readers young and old.
