A Pig Called Heather
This book was originally published in 2013 in the UK and was just published in the US in 2015. Isla and Heather have been chums since Isla's mother died years ago. Of course, Heather is a pig. After a fire destroys their farm and crops, Isla and her dad move to London, leaving Heather on the farm. Through a series of events, Heather becomes a spokespig for the new chicken farm and ends up in London. Eventually Pig and girl are reunited.
So...this one didn't really work for me. There was alot of jumping around from Isla and Heather. The fire scene was not believable. Mr. Busby was set up early to be a real villian - threatening - but he just ended up with the farm after the fire - no real villian. Just not that good.
