A Day No Pigs Would Die

The book A Day No Pigs Would Die is an autobiography by Robert Peck. The book explores the events and adventures of Robert Peck, a poor Shaker boy. Robert lives in a rural town called Learning, Vermont with his family that includes Mama, Aunt Carrie, and Papa. Robert has no friends and is often made fun of at school. He runs away from school, only to find that his neighbor’s cow, Apron, is having trouble giving birth. He saves the cow from choking once he helps get the calf out by using an ingenious way of pulling it out. His neighbor, Mr. Tanner, is very grateful and rewards Robert with a baby piglet. He names the piglet Pinky and they share many experiences together. Pinky is Robert’s only friend. Papa gets sick and Robert and his family need food for the winter. Robert has to choose to sacrifice Pinky or to starve over the winter season. Readers who enjoy farm life and living in the country would make many connections and would enjoy A Day No Pigs Would Die. A Day No Pigs Would Die was a great book.
