About the Author:

Hachler has worked for the past ten years as a freelance journalist specializing in music.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Pablo is completely contented living in a meadow with his own little house and with food provided by his friends in the town nearby. All this comes to an end when his special friend, Vera, discovers bulldozers in his field-housing is being built there. Worse than that, butchers are coming for Pablo. The child helps him escape into town and he finds a new home with a sympathetic lady. Once again, he is completely contented. Delicate pastel watercolors on cream-colored backgrounds complement the slight story well, conveying a sense of space and showing a realistic-looking pig. The text has phrasing that children will enjoy, such as when "Pablo ran so fast his curly tail stuck out straight." Although it has an oversized format, the book will be more appreciated on a one-on-one basis, because the illustrations also have small touches that need to be seen up close. Not an essential purchase, but a moderately appealing one.
