The Adventures of a South Pole Pig by Chris Kurtz

The Adventures of a South Pole Pig

This is a 2016 Bluestem nominee. In the story, Flora the pig is bored with life in the pen on a farm. She longs for adventure, and soon gets it when she is chosen to accompany a dog sled team on an expedition to South Pole. She thinks she is brought along to help pull the sled alongside the dogs… BUT… she is actually brought along to be dinner! When the ship she and her companions are traveling on hits ice and sinks, it is up to Flora and her new animal friends to save the day. Not one of my favorites from the list!
