Ms. Taffy has just won a pig by answering a radio quiz. And she thinks she has the perfect place on her shelf for a little ceramic pig. But when Ms. Taffy rushes out to claim her prize, she makes an astonishing discovery. Her pig isn't ceramic at all. Ms. Taffy has won a real piglet. Now Ms. Taffy is faced with a number of problems: How will she keep a pig in her third-floor walk-up apartment? How will she feed it? And what will she do when the pig gets bigger? With a little ingenuity and some help from her neighbors, Ms. Taffy sets out to answer the question "Can a pig live happily in the city?" Suzanne Bloom's whimsical story of Ms. Taffy, her adorable pig, and a big-hearted neighborhood is bound to bring laughter to young readers and pig lovers alike.
