A Profile in Courage! Actual events inspired the writing of The Little Piggy who could... and Did. We have named the piggy heroine of the story, Sassyfrass, to protect her real identity. Sassyfrass is a little piggy, blessed with ingenuity and perseverance. Trapped in a truck on its way to the market and faced with danger and overwhelming odds, she manages to save t only herself, but all the other piggies in the truck as well. Sassyfrass's heroism doesn't stop there. She manages to rescue other distraught little animals encountered along the road during her journey to safety. This little piggy's story is an inspiration to all of us!
