Elizabeth woman writes children's book

June 21, 2010 - Amy Phelps

The true story of a little piglet being cared for by a mother dachshund is told in text and pictures by Johanna Kerby in "Little Pink Pup."

Kerby, who lives on a farm in Elizabeth, W. Va., tells the story of twelve piglets born one night and the runt of the litter named Pink. When the owners take him into the house to help care for him, their dachshund, Tink, who just had a litter of pups, takes in Pink, and cares for him like one of her own. The puppies slept with the pig, and he ran around the house with them. Pink even ate the puppy food instead of pig food! When he got too big to live in the house, he went to live in the barn, but took his dog bed with him. And the puppies still liked to go out in the barn and visit Pink.

This is a very sweet story filled with cute pictures of the animals, and it's cool that it takes place nearby. It is for ages 3 to 5 and is $16.99.
