Author: Robert Munsch

First line: Megan’s father asked her to feed the pigs on her way to school.

Why you should read this book: Although Megan is convinced that pigs are the stupidest-looking creatures she has ever seen, her father’s porcine charges prove far more self-actuated than anyone could predict. Hijinks include Megan being repeatedly run over by a pack of pigs, authority figures having their shoes defiled, and animals driving a school bus. An appealing comic romp that proves irresistible to young readers.

Why you shouldn't read this book: In your line of work, livestock retention is nothing to laugh about.
