This story is one that has a message for young children which is to be yourself! Penny is the only pig on a horse farm so she naturally feels left out. Her way of dealing with that is to try to make herself more like a horse. The cute illustrations show exactly what she attempts. How does her situation work itself out? Read this book with a child to see.
Using animals can be a good way to tell a story about something important. Children have a little distance this way and may find it easier to talk about their feelings as a result.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
