Based on the viral tweet from award-winning actor Vincent D’Onofrio, Pigs Can’t Look Up is a heartwarming story about a girl, a pig, and a radical act of kindness that will lift even the heaviest of hearts—with full-color illustrations by Shelley Cunningham.
A little girl forges a bond with a pig on her farm, taking note of the unfair truth that because their bodies evolved to forage for food on the ground, pigs can’t look up. Inspired by empathy, the little girl determines and plots to hoist the pig up to see the stars, and in doing so, sees herself.
The limited and poetic text of Pigs Can’t Look Up morphs into a beautiful story of friendship and kindness about how one act of compassion can make a world of a difference in this bold and graphic picture book.
"Cunningham’s delicate illustrations are moving and lovely. A tender tale with a reminder to look up and all around us.”Kirkus Reviews
