Flora the pig was born for adventure: "If it's unexplored and needs to get dug up, call me. I'm your pig," she says.

Before she knows it, she's on board a ship to Antarctica for the most exhilarating--and dangerous--adventure of her life. This poignant novel of a purposeful pig is sure to become a favorite with any young readers who have ever dreamed of exploring the great beyond.
