1.   Pig and the Shrink
Written by
Pamela Todd
Tucker Harrison needs to come up with a winning science fair project in a hurry, so he convinces Angelo "Pig" Pighetti, the heaviest kid in the seventh grade, to participate in a weight-loss experiment. But Angelo, whose family owns a pizza restaurant, gains instead of loses weight. As Tucker watches the warm and loving family work together to make great food, he realizes that Angelo isn't cut out to be anyone's experiment. Tucker begins to look beyond outward appearances and gains a clear sense of Angelo's individuality and worth.
[Grade Level: 4 - 8]
