Synopsis: Isla and Heather are best friends. It hardly matters that Isla is a farmer's daughter and Heather is a pig. From the moment Isla was born, Heather has been there for her, through good times and bad. So when a damaging storm forces Isla's dad to sell his beautiful farm in the Scottish countryside and move with Isla to far-off London, Heather is bereft. She is determined to go to London to find her best friend no matter what--even if it means becoming a fugitive pig! Readers will cheer for Heather from the countryside to the big city in this humorous and charming story of long-lasting friendship, unexpected fame and a very unusual quest.
