About the Author

Jennifer Segarra-Fernandez had loved reading and writing stories since she was a little girl. She especially loved to hear the stories told by her mother of life on her family farm as a child in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. Her favorite story was the one of el lechon Choncho, the lovable, kind, and extraordinary pet pig. Always proud of her Latin heritage, she dreamed of one day bringing this story to life in a children’s book. Her dream finally came true. She lives in the United States with her family. –This text refers to the paperback edition.



If your early reader has not yet met El Lechon Choncho, run, don’t walk, to your nearest bookstore or library. And once you’ve read it, you’ll have to read it again. The book is about Choncho, a giant pinkish-white pig with large ears that stand straight up. He is as big as a truck. Choncho lives with a kind and loving family on their farm. He is especially adored by Hilda, one of the three little girls in the family. Choncho acts more like a dog than a pig. His favorite thing to do is to be with the little girls when they go down the hill to fetch water. He loved sliding down the hill and splashing in the river juz below the hill.

Fun-loving family pet Piggie and three little girls with their amusing and incredible adventures set in the beautiful land of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico are sure to delight the little ones in your life. El Lechon Choncho is written by Jennifer S. Segarra in English with a sprinkling of Spanish Vocabulary throughout the book. Kids will learn words such as un toro grande which means a large bull, pollos which are chickens, patos which are ducks, and vacas which are cows, and many more.


What a fun story. Choncho is such an adorable character and the story is so zany.  Filled with all the elements the young children love, animals, adventure, and humor, El Lechon Choncho is pure delight for the early readers. The writing is lively and laugh-out-loud funny, while still inserting life lessons about sharing, kindness, friendship, and caring for animals.
