Summary
Maya and Julius, the pig her grandfather brings her from Alaska, learn about fun and sharing together. When Maya's grandfather comes for a visit, he brings a surprise in a crate-something, he says, to teach her "fun and sharing". Maya hopes it's a horse or a big brother. But instead it's Julius, a big, cool pig. Maya's parents see Julius as a slob, but Maya herself sees another Julius altogether. She sees a playmate, a protector, and sharer in all that's magical and wild
