In Elliot the Piglet, Elliot is born much smaller than his brothers and sisters and finds it hard to get his share of his mother's milk. But a kind farmer and a new friend's encouraging words help Elliot become the pig he wants to be.
A pig farm is called a piggery, and a pig's home is called a sty. A male pig is called a boar. A female pig, called a sow, may give birth to up to ten piglets in a litter. The smallest pig in a litter is called a runt. The farmer may give smaller, weaker piglets milk in a bottle to help them to grow and become strong.
