Whoever's Heard of a Hibernating Pig? by Eleanor Taylor, Shen Roddie

Poor Pig! He goes out to meet his friends to play but they are all hibernating. What will he do? Then a good idea hits him - he will sleep through the winter as well. But some animals are just not meant to hibernate and it is not long before pig has to come up with an ingenious solution to cure his boredom. And what a sweet and friendly solution it is too. A lovely book to share with young children who may too be having trouble getting to sleep.


A sunny tale to cheer adults and children alike Country Living, December 2000
