A touching story of piggy survival. Daring piglet Beryl escapes from the van on its way to the abattoir. Anything will be better than that, she thinks. Soon she is befriended by a wild pig and meets the Sisterhood of the Mystic Boar. There is much that is interesting about life in the wild but will Beryl ever find a new home for herself? After an epic journey, Beryl finds more of a home than she could ever have dreamed of. The subtle anti-factory farming message will appeal to eco-aware children. A debut novel from one of the UK’s best-loved picture book authors.

About the Author

Jane Simmons

Jane has tried her hand at landscape gardening, futon making, teaching basket weaving and soft toy making but claims the only thing that has held her interest was the idea of writing and illustrating children's books.

Having travelled extensively with her family and living in a whole range of unusual homes, it is no surprise that her current home is hardly conventional. Jane, and her menagerie of rescued pets, live on an ex-fishing boat, aptly named 'Prosperity'. Along with her husband, Neil, she is currently travelling the waterways of France and heading for the sunnier climes of the Mediterranean.

The view from the wheelhouse of 'Prosperity' is the inspiration for Jane's books and while Daisy, gets into all sorts of trouble on the river, Ebb and Flo live on a boat very similar to Jane's and have their adventures by the sea.

Jane and Neil share 'Prosperity' with Gertie and Bertie the lovebirds, dogs called Daisy and Pip and Doris the cat.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
