Publisher Comments:

The Pigman's return ...

Four months after the Pigman died, John and Lorraine are passing by their old friend's empty house when they receive the shock of their lives: An elderly man has taken up residence in the abandoned home. Convinced this down-and-out recluse is a sign from beyond the grave, John and Lorraine decide they've been given a chance to make up for what happened to the Pigman — a chance to make things right, once and for all.

Synopsis:

Zindel's successful and moving follow-up to "The Pigman" picks up four months later, as John and Lorraine are determined to rectify their past mistakes by helping a new friend any way they can.

About the Author

Paul Zindel (1936-2003) was discovered in the mid-1960s by Charlotte Zolotow, who had seen a television production of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds and decided that Zindel must try his hand at young adult fiction. Mr. Zindel went on to become a pioneer in the genre as we know it today.

His books for HarperCollins include The Doom Stone and Loch, both Recommended Books for the Reluctant YA Reader (ALA), and the tragicomic memoir The Pigman & Me, which School Library Journal said in a starred review "allows readers a glimpse of Zindel's youth, gives them insight into some of his fictional characters, and provides many examples of universal experiences that will make them laugh and cry." The Pigman & Me was both a 1993 ALA Best Book for Young Adults and a 1993 ALA Notable Children's Book.
