Book Review of A Day No Pigs Would Die

A Day No Pigs Would Die
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 2

I hated this book. To me, it is an example of one modern approach to children's books that finds value in depicting ugly and cruel things in the name of realism. True to some people's lives, it may be, but the ending, which I presume the author and some others consider to be a fine resolution, made me almost sick. I read the book too long ago to recall many details, but whenever I see it mentioned, I feel sadness, anger, and disdain.
