Pigs Might Fly

Mrs Barleylove is horrified to discover that her latest litter contains a dag – a weakling of a piglet with strangely misshapen feet. But after his miraculous escape from an early and ignominious death at the hands of the pigman, the dag assumes a unique and favoured position in the sties.

Pigs Might Fly, also known as Daggie Dogfoot was Dick King-Smith’s first book about a pig, his favourite farm animal. This touching story is packed with energy and humour and is perfect for 8 – 10 year olds.
