Well, they are grown up now, and, thanks to their parents, they are well on their way to fully dazzling the world as adults. But when they were younger, I thought of a story for them: how a cheerful little pig named Ogilvy, the happiest porker on the farm, started thinking he wanted to be more like the other animal, and less like himself; and all the kersnaffles that caused until he realized being himself was the best thing he could be!
I wanted Ogilvy to help children everywhere (and children at heart; isn’t that all of us?) feel good about just how one-of-a-kind they are. So the story of “Ogilvy, the Pig who Whistled,” was put to paper.
Today, I am sharing this children’s story book in the hopes children big and small, especially my nieces, really understand there is nothing better than being yourself.
About the Author:
Pam grew up in Southern California, and now calls Portland, Oregon her home, where she works in word craft as the vice president of a public relations agency. She has over twenty years experience writing for herself and others, although she is reasonably sure this is the first time she’s ghost-written for a pig.

When not story-telling, Pam is travelling, running, and wondering if you’re going to eat those last french fries on your plate.
