What's New

ITCHY PIG

Itchy pigITCHY PIG author Nicole Cox and her husband adopted Gunner, a rescued pit bull puppy who had suffered abuse and neglect at the hands of his former owners. With his short, tattered ears and large snout, he resembled a cute little pig, and because of his food and seasonal allergies, Gunner was always itchy. So they started calling him "Itchy Pig," and the nickname stuck. After experimenting with different foods, Nicole found some that Gunner wasn’t allergic to—fruits and veggies are his favorite treats—and the sick puppy has now grown into a healthy and happy dog.

Gunner’s story inspired Nicole to write a children’s book to help kids learn about allergies and how to live with them. This March Inkshares will be publishing Nicole Cox's picture book, ITCHY PIG (Hardcover; $17.99; pub date: March 22, 2016), a story about a mischievous piglet who goes on an outdoor adventure, learning an itchy lesson about allergies.
