A pig, who thinks of himself as a chicken because of his fears, finds that he is actually quite brave. His car breaks down halloween night so he enters a nearby castle, only to be subjected to an evil doctor who transforms him into a giant pig. When the doctor finds he actually has no control over the pigs mind he kicks him out of his castle. The pig finds a couple to him, and eventually the evil doctor is discovered and returned to the insane asylum. The pigs bravery helps both himself, and the others that were transformed by the experiments of Doctor Vermin. This book has a lot of words, with lots of pictures as well. My 6 year old daughter is not yet interested in chapter books because there are no pictures, but loves books like these.
