Description
Originally published in hardcover in 1972, "A Day No Pigs Would Die "was one of the first young adult books, along with titles like "The Outsiders "and "The Chocolate War." In it, author Robert Newton Peck weaves a story of
a Vermont boyhood that is part fiction, part memoir. The result is a moving coming-of-age story that still resonates with teens today.



About the Author
Peck grew up on a small farm in Vermont. He ambitiously worked his way up from a lumberjack to the marketing manager of a large company in New York. As a successful writer he moved to Florida where he has devoted all his time to writing.


Praise For A Day No Pigs Would Die

“Reading this book is like sipping hot cider in front of a crackling potbellied stove. Every page is suffused with wit and charm and glowing with warmth.”–Newsweek

“A lovely book. . . . Honest, moving, homely in the warm and simple sense of the word. . . . It is small, accepting and loving and it succeeds perfectly.”–Boston Globe

“You’ll find yourself caught up in the novel’s emotion from the very opening scene. . . . Love suffuses every page.”–The New York Times

"With plenty of Yankee common sense and dry wit, and some pathos as the boy at 13 takes on the duties of a man. For boys of this age and for the young of any age."--School Library Journal.
