This is the story of a little girl named Fern, who saved a tiny pig from being killed by her father because the pig was a runt. Having raised the pig for six weeks the pig has to go. He is sold to Fern's uncle, who lives close by, so Fern can visit the pig, who is called Wilbur, every day. But Fern's uncle is not raising Wilbur for fun. Oh no, Wilbur is going to become delicious sausages, bacon and ham if somebody doesn't do something...
There have been several films made out of this, one cartoon, and a more modern, animated film, in 2006.
My dad read me this book when I was a kid. It so cool!
