Pyg: The Memoirs of Toby, the Learned Pig


A heartwarming debut introduces readers to the adventures of its overachieving porcine narrator

Blending the subtle satire of Jonathan rapid with the fascinating exuberance of a Pixar movie, Pyg tells the tale of Toby, a really unprecedented pig who lived in past due eighteenth-century England. After successful the blue ribbon on the Salford cattle reasonable and escaping the butcher's knife, Toby excursions the rustic, wowing circus audiences together with his skills to count number, spell, or even learn the minds of girls (but basically with their permission, of course). He is going directly to research at Oxford and Edinburgh—encountering such luminaries as Samuel Johnson, Robert Burns, and William Blake—before eventually writing his personal lifestyles tale. Quirky, beguiling, and without end pleasing, this memoir of a "remarkable sapient pig" is a pointy and witty delight.
