Our Saving Marty by Paul Griffen Book Review

Saving Marty is a book my children resisted reading, but it crept up on them. The first page settled them as they were introduced to Paloma and Renzo.

It’s an animal story, but it’s also a story of friendship.

A pig who thinks he’s a dog.

A boy who needs a friend.

As I ponder our reading of Saving Marty, I also realize it isn’t just an animal story. It’s a human story. One that tugs at your heart and fills your soul.

We really loved how the characters came to life. My kiddos want to be Renzo’s friend. I want to be Renzo’s friend.

As I was tucking my eleven-year-old in for bed, he said, “Mom, I want to hear Palmoa sing.” I do too.

The good guys melt your heart and the bad guys…well, they’re believably bad guys. People you know and while I think my children have been settled from the bad guys (thankfully), I did find myself thinking back to the ones I have met, and it made this book so much more powerful. I suppose the lesson is to forgive some of them and focus on the slivers of humanity that they do have, that occasionally make an appearance.

It’s a book of realistic fiction, and Paul Griffin writes an incredible story.

The fate of Renzo’s father is one that parents may want to prepare to address with their children.

Fans of Because of Winn Dixie will adore this warm and heart-wrenching story of the friendship between a boy and a pig who thinks it’s a dog.

Eleven-year-old Lorenzo Ventura knows heroes are rare–like his father, who died in the war, or his friend Paloma Lee, who fearlessly pursues her dream of being a famous musician. Renzo would never describe himself as a hero, but his chance comes when he adopts Marty, a runt piglet.

Marty is extraordinary–he thinks he’s a dog and acts like one too–and his bond with Renzo is truly one of a kind. At first, the family farm seems like the perfect home for Marty, but as he approaches 350 pounds, it becomes harder for Renzo to convince his mom that a giant pig makes a good pet. So when Marty causes a dangerous (and expensive) accident, Renzo knows Marty’s time is up. He’d do anything, and everything for his best friend, but will everything be enough to save Marty?

Paul Griffin masterfully melds the heartrending and the hopeful in this unforgettable story about the power of friendship . . . And the unsung heroes all around us.
