After winning the blue ribbon at the Salford Livestock Fair and escaping the butchers knife, Toby tours the country, wowing circus audiences with his abilities to count, spell, and even read the minds of ladies (but only with their permission, of course). He goes on to study at Oxford and Edinburgh--encountering such luminaries as Samuel Johnson, Robert Burns, and William Blake--before finally writing his own life story. Quirky, beguiling, and endlessly entertaining, this memoir of a remarkable sapient pig is a sharp and witty delight.
