The year Paul Zindel, his sister, Betty, and their mother lived in the town of Travis, Staten Island, New York, was the most important time of his teenage life. It was the year he and Jennifer Wolupopski were best friends. It was the year of the apple tree, the water-head baby, and Cemetery Hill. And it was the year he met Nonno Frankie Vivona, who became his Pigman.

Every word of his story is true. And The Pigman and Me has an added bonus--one crucial piece of information: the secret of life, according to the Pigman.

    " So far (I'm on about page 60), the book is sort of interesting, but a bit strange and disjointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barrette Plett | 1/7/2014

    " Great story! Can't believe it's true. Better than his novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 9/25/2013

    " An absolutely delightful and entertaning autobiography. It covers just a few adolescent years of the author's life and how those years influenced him for good. Realistic, interesting, and fun. It will take you back to middle school! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Young | 9/19/2013

    " Good, but not as good as the original. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 6/2/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Murphy | 2/20/2013

    " The Pigman is so far my favorite of the YA books I have had to read for my library class in the fall. This book The Pigman and Me is a biographical version of The Pigman, it really shows how the author took his experience and played with it. If you like The Pigman this title is a fun experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurel | 1/27/2013

    " hilarious and approachable--4th grade - adults. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie Shaurette | 11/18/2012

    " If I was a bigger Paul Zindel fan, I might have been a little more enthused about this one. Just like his novels, this autobiographical work is full of teenage wit, sarcasm, and sensitivity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie Jacobson | 10/31/2012

    " Fast, easy read. I don't know if I would have read this for fun as a kid because I wasn't into memoirs back then, but I think it would be great to teach and I think teens would like it in that context. It's interesting how he found humor even in the challenging circumstances of his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 8/6/2012

    " I didn't learn what a pigman is but I enjoyed Zindel's memoirs of his teenage years. It was an entertaining and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/16/2012

    " this was a ok book it was a read aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey | 11/3/2011

    " It was fascinating to learn about the factual background to the Pigman books. Zindel never talked down to or pulled punches with his young readers. I try to do this as a teacher, but he was definitely better at it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizzette | 5/28/2011

    " This is a great book, and no its not about a man who's a pig. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paige Kinnaird | 5/18/2011

    " Thought I would use this book as a companion for reading THE PIGMAN with my students. Not really finding material in this book that would complement the fictional story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maddie | 5/16/2011

    " Read for middle school. I think I hated it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 5/12/2011

    " Paul Zindel was one of my favorite authors in middle and high school, and this was one of my favorite books by him. Many of his books follow a bit of a formula, but this is the book that originated it, and in my opinion, it's the best one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 4/28/2011

    " A great book, along with it's sequel that I read in high school and still love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 4/11/2011

    " This is an older book, so it was ind of fun to see references to things long gone. It received a lot of praise and awards, but I wasn't that thrilled with it. Of course there is the lesson of being truthful and not taking advantage of people, but it wasn't strong enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra | 4/8/2011

    " this book was an okay book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 4/5/2011

    " Very touching book.
    I liked it :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nik | 4/3/2011

    " For some reason, this is a good book to read in the winter. I forgot why since I read it so long ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tylerfleming | 4/3/2011

    " The pigman was an awesome book about an older gentleman named Mr. Pignati and he refused to tell people about his wife dying. Mr. Pignati becomes friends with two teenagers. This is a really good book full of thrills and mystery. Take some time and read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 3/30/2011

    " The Pigman was an okay book, but it was just was a little boring. The book was about two kids who meet a man who is very lonely, and they become good friends "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 3/12/2011

    " This book is a bit dated and the characters didn't ring entirely true. The author had an agenda: His themes include the impersonal nature of society, the generation gap, and other sort of musty ideas. But it was OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dayana | 3/10/2011

    " It was okay I guess I just didn't like the ending!. "
