"Jasper the Business Pig makes the sale with silliness and charm." -- Kirkus

Jasper would rather draw graphs than play in the mud. Can this cutie pig find someone to adopt him who means business, too?

Right from the start, everyone at the barnyard could tell Jasper wasn't like his siblings: "I believe what we have here is a gen-u-WINE Business Pig!" No wallowing in the mud or rooting for grubs for Jasper; he'd rather help with the bookkeeping or conduct a meeting. Though everyone at the animal sanctuary loves him, Jasper longs for a forever home. But no matter how many business cards he hands out, no one wants to adopt him. Can this above-average pig find his special person to cut deals with?

Booklist Review: "When Jasper the pig was born, the volunteers at the farm sanctuary noticed that something was a little bit . . . different. Maybe it was the three-piece suit he sported and his preference for bookkeeping over playing in the mud. Either way, Jasper's business sense leads him to tackle the greatest project of all time: getting himself adopted. Will Jasper's charts, résumés, and unique marketing strategies pay off? Zuill pulls double duty as author and illustrator, and her vibrant colored-ink drawings pair well with the text. Somehow, she makes a suit-wearing piglet look confident and cute at the same time. The sly humor mixed with a happy ending will be best enjoyed by those who love Marla Frazee's The Boss Baby (2010). Young readers may be confused about the ease by which a child adopts a pig (a notoriously difficult pet) from an animal sanctuary. But in the right setting, this story about a sweet, porky entrepreneur who brokers the deal of a lifetime could lend itself well to a silly storytime.--Erin Linsenmeyer Copyright 2018 Booklist"
