Can't remember the title?

  1. Can anybody remember a short children's novel about children campaigning to save a pig. The children find the pig and keep it in a shed but when the adults find out they want to send it back to the abbatoir and a 'Save Our Pig' campaign commences! I would love to use it in class but can't find it.
     
  2. Charlotte's Web by E. B. White?

    Charlotte's Web has similarities but I don't think that it's the one the OP is describing.
     
  4. Thanks but no it's not Charlotte's Web. It's something like 'Pig' or 'The Pig' or possible 'Save Our Pig' but no google searches are giving me any luck. Thanks for trying though.

    Only book I can come up with is set in WWII called Ernestine pig in a potting shed but can't find any review to see if it's that one.
