This is such a wonderful story with a lovely reminder about why learning is so amazing and important. Poor Rufus is a pig and pigs aren't allowed in school. But Rufus won't give up! He's on a mission and it's an important one. The gorgeous art and sweet, sweet story have turned this into a favorite at home. My son, at almost 9 years old, still asks for me to read this with him at bedtime. This is just the thing as we ease back into school this fall.
