Pete the Hungry Pig


In the east of Kentucky is a small rural farm
with animals and gardens and quaint country charm.
The newest animal in the barn is a pig named Pete
who wants nothing more than to eat and to eat!
It started with his feed bag but then he kept going.
Every day Pete’s appetite kept growing and growing!
If he can’t stop eating, what will happen to the farm?
Could a hungry little pig really do that much harm?

This is the first children’s book published by Sue Wambolt and is beautifully illustrated by artist Havilah Racette.

Pete the Hungry Pig was written in 1993 – 26 years ago! After the story was written I printed it out and was not sure what I was going to do with it. In the year that followed, I lost a baby in my third trimester, my mother passed away at the young age of 59 and then we lost our home in a fire. It was a tough year and Pete the Hungry Pig was lost in the shuffle – literally. For many, many years it was forgotten about as another baby entered our family and life with four little children was very busy. A few years ago I began to wonder what ever happened to the story and looked all through the basement to see if I could find it (the computer it was written on no longer existed and there was just the one laminated copy). I was unable to find it and assumed that it must have been lost in the fire. Last year, while cleaning out an old file cabinet I inadvertently came across the long lost Pete the Hungry Pig story! Now, 26 years later, my children have grown up and I have seven (almost 9) wonderful grandchildren. It was obvious to me that the story had to be brought to life for my grandchildren and all of the other children out there who have vivid imaginations and a love for good fun!
