The Adventures of a South Pole Pig by Chris Kurtz


Flora's life begins, like most pigs, on a farm with her sisters and brothers, but she has an ambition to become a sled pig. When she finds herself on a ship headed to Antarctica, she thinks her dream is coming true.  How can Flora prove she is worth more than bacon?

Chris Kurtz's The Adventures of a South Pole Pig reminded me of Wilbur in Charlotte's Web.

New Kid by Tim Green


My students are reading and recommending two books by Tim Green: New Kid and Kid Owner.  I haven't yet read Kid Owner, but as popular as it is with my sports fans, it is on my reading list.

New Kid is about a baseball player whose dad suddenly moves him from one town to another and changes his name.  A prank gone wrong gets the attention of the local baseball coach and soon Tommy AKA Brock is recruited to an elite team.  Will Tommy's father let him play?  Will he have to move to a new town because of his fame?
