Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERAMAZON BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR SO FAR

Unlikely pig owners Steve and Derek got a whole lot more than they bargained for when the designer micro piglet they adopted turned out to be a full-sized 600-pound sow! In the bestselling tradition of pet memoirs such as Oogy, Dewey, and Giant George, the story of ESTHER THE WONDER PIG shows how families really do come in all shapes and sizes.

In the summer of 2012, Steve Jenkins was contacted by an old friend about adopting a micro piglet. Though he knew his partner Derek wouldn't be enthusiastic, he agreed to take the adorable little pig anyway, thinking he could care for her himself. Little did he know, that decision would change his and Derek's lives forever.

It turned out there was nothing "micro" about Esther, and Steve and Derek had actually signed on to raise a full-sized commercial pig. Within three years, Tiny Esther grew to a whopping 600 pounds. After some real growing pains and a lot of pig-sized messes, it became clear that Esther needed much more space, so Steve and Derek made another life-changing decision: they bought a farm and opened the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, where they could care for Esther and other animals in need.

Funny, heartwarming, and utterly charming, ESTHER THE WONDER PIG follows Steve and Derek's adventure--from reluctant pig parents to farm-owning advocates for animals.

    Has a pig ever changed your view of the world? Esther has done this for so many! I happily met Esther last fall, something that I will never forget even though I'm sure she would never remember me because have you seen how many people come to the farm just to see her??? I've followed Esther and her dads for such a long time and though I know most of these stories already, it was beautiful to read the unending love that they have for each other and for every animal they have. I read the eBook, listened to Steve read the audio book and I have to say you can feel that love just through his voice. They are good people and Esther is an inspiration to us all! Keep being the beautiful porcine Princess that you are!!! Live the Esther Effect, love them all just like her!

    This is a wonderful story about how love develops and kindness. Esther symbolizes what is missing in many of our lives and that is loving unconditionally. The question here is who " saved" who in this book.
