And a pig with hope can accomplish wonders, as listeners will happily discover in this delightfully funny tale about life on the farm and the power of a dream. The musical finale will have listeners of all ages tapping their toes in delight. Praise for the print version of HOBART: "Briggs slyly slips a message about perseverance and believing in oneself into her narrative, which she peppers with wry lines." -- Publisher's Weekly Anita Briggs is a concert harpist who lives at Willow Hill, an 18th century house high on a flowery knoll above the village of Cherry Valley, New York. She shares the house with her husband, Walter, and their cranky feline, Miss Kitty. HOBART is her first book for young readers.
