Teaser Tuesday August 30: Oink: My Life with Minipigs by Matt Whyman

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:03 am by The Word Jar

Teaser Tuesdays asks you to:

* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that page.

You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your teaser from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

As always, please avoid spoilers!

*   *   *   *   *

From the dog’s point of view, a light pork snack had just offered itself up on a plate. I could only think that Sesi was too stunned to act, for Roxi calmly trotted through the space between her forelegs.

To clear things up, Sesi is a white wolf-like dog and Roxi is a minipig. Roxi definitely has moxie, and when the large canine comes to observe the minipigs behind a protective baby gate, Roxi saunters right through the bars and proves she has just as much a right to be in the house as Sesi.

Oink: My Life with Minipigs is an entertaining account of how chaotic life becomes for author Matt Whyman when his wife decides that two minipigs would be a great addition to their already abundant family (four kids, one dog, one cat, and some chickens). I’ve been looking forward to this lighthearted book after some of the heavier psychological thrillers I’ve been reading this summer.

What are you reading this week?
