Pigs Might Fly by Nick Abadzis

Into the Wild

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.

Well, maybe a dap of magic provided by her cousin Archie. Thus, she's secretly designed her own plane and has even...

Take Porco Posso and smash it together with the female-led movies of Studio Ghibli like Nausicaa and you get this strange, but rather delightful tale about a land of pigs, magic, and airplanes. It's exciting, but with some interesting dialogues about faith and technology that are accessible to ch...

The strong female character was my favorite part of this graphic novel. Lily (a pig) is an inventor; she's working on an airplane that could fly using science rather than magic. Although her best friend thinks some protection spells would also be useful; he's probably right about that. Lily needs...

It took me a month to get through this, and that's not a good sign. A young pig has finished her father's design for a flying machine and taken it out on a test flight. She tries to tell him about her work, but he won't listen and considers her work inferior. Meanwhile their peaceful pig settleme...

I really enjoyed this graphic novel which is possibly aimed at UKS2+. A play on the phrase itself, Abadzis has created a world of anthropomorphic pigs who dream of reaching into the skies. It is a world partly of magic and science and both are in conflict as Lily finds the warthogs beyond the mou...

Unique characters and world-building, filled with clever puns, drive this story through surprising twists. The graphic elements are cinematic, though I had a bit of trouble following some of the airborne plane battles. I enjoyed how the female characters, all of whom have been dismissed or dimini...

OK - imagine a world "peopled" by pigs, mechanical flight is just being developed and there is magic. It's a big jump I know, but I thought this was a whole lot of fun. The young female pig, Lily, is trying to prove her skills and fight for opportunities when an aerial invasion of her country mak...

An exuberant middle grade graphic adventure novel in which Lily Leanchops, a teenaged pig, makes an airplane that can fly without the use of magic and uses it when the Warthogs threaten to invade Pigdom Plains. See my full review here.
