Pigs Can't Look Up
Author: Vincent D'Onofrio
Illustrator: Shelly Cunningham
Based on the viral tweet from actor Vincent D’Onofrio comes a heartwarming story about a girl, a pig, and a radical act of kindness that will lift even the heaviest of hearts.
In this spare picture book, a little girl forges a bond with a pig on her farm, taking note of the unfair truth that because their bodies evolved to forage for food on the ground, pigs can’t look up. Inspired by empathy, the little girl determines and plots to hoist the pig up to see the stars, and in doing so, sees herself. Originally written as a tweet by actor Vincent D’Onofrio, the limited and poetic text morphs into a beautiful story of friendship and kindness in this bold and graphic picture book.
