Thimble Summer, by Elizabeth Enright

"A girl named Garnet finds a silver thimble during a drought. That night, the drought ends. Then many exciting things happen, like hitching a ride to Blaiseville 13 miles away, Eric comes, and a haystack falls on her. She enters a pig named Timmy into a show, then has to wait six hours to find out if he wins. So she and her friend Citronella go on fair rides, eat ice cream, and Citronella almost throws up. Finally, she heads to where the show is and finds out that Timmy has won! She eventually begins to believe that the thimble is magic, because of everything that happened."
