Each day Esmeralda collects a variety of objects and waddles down the hill. Everyone wonders why the Saddleback sow is carrying a bottle, fencing wire and a pair of sneakers in her mouth. Only Esmeralda knows. Nothing will stop her. This is a gorgeous picture book with striking images by Mandy Foot. It teaches children about living in the country and how animals follow their instincts.
