Very touching in some parts, too graphic in others. I decided it does not meet my shelf standard.

I liked this book...but I don't think I'd hand it over to my 11-year-old. It's not that it's overly violent - although there's definitely some rough scenes - it's just that it might be a little too much for younger kids. The story was quick, it kept me reading, and I enjoyed references to Rutland (which is only 30 minutes away).

I through this will be about a boy who has a pet pig and he at odds with his father. Instead its a coming of age story. With a mix of laugh out lough and sad parts.

Just to let you know there are some brutal killing of animals. I couldn't stand reading through most of it.
I like Robert the way he has a lot of respect for his family and neighbors. He is quit a talker and will say the funniest of things, he also love his pet pig.
