Perrier is no ordinary pig. He is a purebred potbellied pig who lives with the Hollywood movie star Mirabella. Whisked away to exotic locations, pampered, and praised, Perrier is the toast of the town. He has it all . . . so so why does he feel as though there's something missing in his life? Featuring the brilliant artwork of rising star Martin Matje, A Pig Named Perrier shows us that sometimes we have to get our hands (and hooves) a little dirty to find our inner pig.
