Tales of Pig Isle

Joy and Andy McAloon are two of the special children who are born with the gift of Pig Speak. This gift opens the way for them to visit Pig Isle and befriend the Pigmeister. 

A Pig Isle Adventure

The Pigmeister's best friend needs help.  Rance Hogg is one of the best friends a farm animal can have.  But hard times are causing him to lose the family farm for taxes!  Now, with Joy McAloon's help, the Pigmeister will get back into training to help his friend with a Pay-Per-View sporting event to raise the tax money and save the farm.

Meanwhile, two-year-old Andy will get to be the Mayor of Pig Isle for an entire week.  Andy is overjoyed at the chance to be in charge, and he starts his administration by giving free candy and ice cream to all the children. But during his week as mayor, Andy learns some valuable lessons about leadership, responsibility and good citizenship.

A Pig Isle Christmas

The Pigmeister wants this year to be the best Christmas that Pig Isle has ever seen. He has made fat snowmen with carrot noses and silk top hats, and he has wrapped tinsel ropes around all of the lamp posts. The shops are filled with Christmas dolls in satin dresses and real cowboy hats and every sort of toy you can imagine. The scent of sweet Christmas cakes and warm figgy puddings is everywhere. But, there is no Christmas spirit on Pig Isle.

On Christmas Eve, he brings Joy and Andy McAloon back to the Isle to help him host a  Christmas Pageant.  With the help of the Pigmeister's magical Christmas tree, Joy and Andy are able to show the children of Pig Isle the story of the first Christmas and introduce them to God's best gift to the world--His Son.

"I read Tales of Pig Isle to my five-year-old son, and he said that he liked all of it; but 'A Pig Isle Christmas' was his favorite. He said that other little boys and girls would like the stories.  They are very imaginative, and the values presented are worth the read."  Tiffany Orthman, reviewer for Home Educating Family.
