A cute story about a brave and adventure-seeking pig named Flora. She lives a normal pig life until one day she is taken aboard a boat headed on an expedition to the South Pole. She doesn't realize it, but she is destined to become food for the crew. All she can dream about is being a sled dog - or rather, a sled pig. She strikes up a friendship with a cat named Sophia, and they work together to rid the cargo hold of rats. When the boat is shipwrecked, it's all Flora and Sophia can do to stay alive with the other survivors. The two befriend a sled dog named Oscar and together they help save the crew. Carolyn enjoyed this book very much - didn't want it to end - and we loved the delightful illustrations.
