An inspiration for dreamers young and old.

Porkelia is not your average pig. Tired of rooting around in the mud and living in a sty, Porkelia turns to the Wise One for an answer. When the Wise One proclaims that Porkelia was born to be the first piggy Rockette, she is overjoyed--that's all she's ever dreamed of being, after all.

Despite everyone else's doubts, Porkelia takes a leap of faith and says goodbye to her home as she sets off to New York City. Once there, she realizes that the road to becoming a star is not easy. After years of selling blenders by day and dancing by night, Porkelia finally gets her big break when she is discovered by an agent!

Lindy Tucker's funny rhymes and unique illustrations combine to tell a touching story of determination and hard work. More than just a story about a pig, Porkelia inspires readers young and old to follow their dreams, while staying true to where they came from.
