Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Farmer Greenstalk and his family have the darnedest luck. Broken-down tractors, kites stuck in trees—they’re always having problems! It’s a good thing they have such helpful farm animals on hand.

This time around, the pigs want to pitch in, and boy, do they ever! The Greenstalks soon find, though, that life might just be a little easier without their help…

Pigs to the Rescue is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
