From the back cover:
Set in the 60’s, this is a true story about our pet pig, Janice Jean, and all the fun adventures and laughs we had with her. This is the first of many tales about our precious JJ, where the reader learns valuable life lessons through her escapades. I hope you will come to love Janice Jean as much as we did. Be on the lookout for Janice Jean the Homecoming Queen.
About the author:
Lisa Larson Gorum is a proud Southern Belle, born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama. Her childhood is filled with rich memories of growing up in the Deep South! To this day, her Southern heritage is a matter of deep pride, and she carries it with her wherever she goes.
Back then people played hard, loved life, and literally had no idea how hot it was. Lisa would leave home in the morning and not come back until the first neighborhood mother called out that it was time for supper! It was a MUCH different time!
Lisa wrote Janice Jean the Swimming Swine eight years ago in a workshop for children’s book authors. The manuscript collected dust on a shelf until she gained the confidence and desire to contact a publisher. She cried, she screamed, she jumped for joy, when she got a “Yes”!
Janice Jean was a member of the family for years. Lisa’s brother and his friends took JJ everywhere and the entire community knew and loved her. In those days, there weren’t that many pet pigs around!
Lisa’s prayer is that readers will come to love the stories of the pig’s spunky little spirit. That children will benefit from the lessons learned, that her exploits will entertain and Janice Jean will add a bright spot to everyone’s heart!
