I loved this story and the fantastic pics of Esther in all of her glory. The author has a conversational writing style that I enjoyed.

Sweet true story of Derek and Steve and how one day they found themselves becoming surrogate parents for a tiny little pig -- a "mini-pig" or so they were told. But then Esther grew...and grew and their tiny little two bedroom home, already filled with several dogs and cats became even more crowded. I had heard bits and pieces about this family -- who live in Canada and apparently had thousands of people following their story on Facebook...but really enjoyed reading about their trials and tribulations and all the amazing things that can happen when a 650 pound pig lives inside the house. Funny, touching story and how it changed these two men.

This is a fantastic read. it is humorous, compassionate, and very engaging. Can you imagine getting what you think is a mini pig, who grows to be a maxi pig. The book is a celebration of taking on a challenge with love and commitment. Do yourself a favor - read this book!
