Description

Dan is not sure he'll survive the boring field trip to a remote heritage farm. How could a place with no running water, telephone or electricity be anything but dull? The farmer knows nothing about farming and is angry about having to conduct the tour. And what's with his tattoo? The teacher requests a private word with the farmer and then mysteriously disappears. After a messy attack of allergies, Dan is excused to find a tissue. He sneaks back to the school bus and discovers the driver and teacher have been bound and gagged. The farmer is really an escaped convict with nasty plans. Will Dan be able to find help in time?
Also available in French.

Editorial Reviews

"Dan's wry sense of humor catches readers' attention and has them rooting for him practically from the first page. Pigboy is a great quick read for boys who may be reluctant readers, but others will enjoy it as well."

— School Library Journal

"It would suit high interest low vocabulary readers with its brevity and reading level, but the high action and excellent writing, not to mention the likable main character, would make it a good choice for any reader."

— Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children's Books

“This quick read is perfect for reluctant readers, especially boys. In a story of bravery and redemption, Grant moves quickly to first establish Dan’s post on the lowest rung of the social ladder, and then chronicles his eventual rise to the top.”

— KLIATT

"Middle school readers will appreciate this adventure."

— VOYA

“Grant hits the nail on the head when she brings both mucous and underwear into the story line…Grant writes a compelling story with lots of suspense, but it's the journey to Dan’s personal redemption that is most enjoyable to read…Highly recommended.”

— CM Magazine
