This vividly animated kids book tells the story of a "pudge" who escapes from a factory farm. Later he comes back to the farm to free the other pudges and turn the farmer vegetarian. While the pudge is not a real animal, the story and gravity of factory farming is relayed to kids in a direct but gentle way. I love that the pudge comes back to do good by his pudge-brethren, and that everyone wins in the end, both the farmer and the animals. While the story doesn't play out that way in "real" life, this is a book for kids, and it teaches hope and compassion, and that there is always a way for things to end well.
