Read Pigs Might Fly Online Free - All the sensible hogfolk in Pigdom Plains know that if pigs were meant to fly, they'd have been born with wings but there's no convincing Lily Leanchops. The daughter of renowned inventor Hercules Fatchops, Lily has watched her father's flying machines fail time and time again. Working in secret, Lily is trying to build what her father couldn't: an aircraft that actually works. And of course, she's following his example and employing scientific principals alone, not magic. (Well, a protection spell or two doesn't count, right?)
Lily's secret project takes on a new sense of urgency when a mysterious enemy emerges from beyond the mountains. The Warthogs are coming, and they're piloting flying machines powered by dangerous magic spells. To save Pigdom Plains, Lily must take to the skies in her own experimental aircraft and there's no time for a test run.

I thought it was very heavy-handed. Science vs. faith, immigration--I felt like I was being lectured and there was a sort of deus ex machina ending where the "bad guys" turned out to be motivated by some external evil force. Weird and unfun.

OK Graphic novel- looks like it will work for 4-high school. I don't think the younger kids will get some of the language- but that wont stop them from enjoying the story. I was not a fan of the artwork, I found it dark and muddy.

I like this crazy concept piece. Pigs are trying to build airplanes in a steampunk society. There's a supervillain, high priestesses, spies and a strong female lead. Magic and technology merge, and the artwork is a lot of fun.

The characters feel a little stiff. They each have a main personality trait that ma...
