A true story of a little pig with a big heart
From the barnyard of Leanne Lauricella, the rescuer behind the hugely popular Goats of Anarchy, Piney the Goat Nanny tells the true story of Piney, the rescued pig!
When she left New York City for the wilds of New Jersey in 2011, Leanne Laurciella knew nothing about animal sanctuaries. She started her Instagram account, @goatsofanarchy, shortly after getting her first two goats, Jax and Opie. Over 400,000 followers and one Webby Award later, Leanne's Instagram has turned into a non-profit organization that continues to provide special-needs goats a happy and loving forever home. Today, Leanne somehow finds time to write while caring for her goat family, and has written a coffee table book, children's books, and calendars about everyday life at her sanctuary.
Born in a tiny town in the hills of Pennsylvania, Jill Howarth always wanted to be an artist. She graduated from Penn State University with a degree in graphic design and entered the corporate design world. As a senior designer and then art director at Hasbro Toys, she occasionally embellished product packaging with fun little drawings. More requests for these illustrations came her way and before she knew it, she was doing more drawing and less layout design. She lives just west of Boston with her husband, three kids, and lazy dog.
