Then one day he sets off on a very “pig-culiar” adventure, and it turns out that he’s not the only one who believes he’s an absolutely-really-truly doctor.

Why you need this book:

This story helps show kids (and the rest of us) that yes, they can be what they want to be, even if their dreams seem out of reach.
