Within the pages of Jennifer Hengy’s new book, The Purple Pig, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498473149; $4.99, e-book, 9781498473156) young readers will meet a delightful and colorful herd of pigs. In this herd there are pink pigs, black and white pigs, orange pigs and a very special purple pig. The purple pig is sad. He has no friends, no one to talk to and no one to play with. He knows that the reason no one wants to be his friend is because he is different. His one wish is to have a friend and so he begins an adventure to find one. Children will follow the purple pig on his journey as he finds new friendships and discovers the meaning of true happiness. It’s a wonderful lesson that teaches children to be true to themselves and to accept that everyone is different. Friendship comes from understanding and love and is not just something that happens overnight. Beautiful, full-color illustrations add to the charm of this special story.
“I hope that children learn that everyone is different and that is what makes the world such a wonderful place,” states the author.
Jennifer Hengy has a special place in her heart for this wonderful story. It is a story that goes back to her childhood – one that she repeatedly told to her youngest sisters – upon their request to hear it over and over again. The story is quite entertaining and offers a great lesson with an exciting spin at the end of the story. She truly believes that the lessons taught in her book are ones that will be remembered through a child’s life.
