Ollie the pig dreams of flight, and enlists his human friend Jack to help him build wings, kites, and other clever contraptions to reach the sky.

Then Ollie runs as hard as ever a pig could run, until his trotters lift from the ground and—Crash! In Sky Pig, Jan Coates weaves a story of sweetness and whimsy, ingenuity and empathy. Plasticine artist Suzanne Del Rizzo brings dimension and energy to the tale of a pig who wants—against all popular truisms—to fly.
