Synopsis

Twinkle, Twinkle, Squiglet Pig by Joyce Dunbar

Once, in a place at the bottom of the ocean that is deeper, darker, further, wetter, colder, lonelier ...than anything you can imagine, lived a piglet squid ...Piglet Squid spends all day smiling his big, dreamy, happy smile ...but his friends in the deep are always so woebegone. One day, Piglet Squid embarks on a quest to find something magical to show them all ...A quirky deep-sea adventure about a plucky little creature, determined to show his friends that there are wondrous things to smile about ...if you look hard enough. Twinkle, Twinkle, Squiglet Pig is inspired by a real animal, normally found more than 320 feet below the surface of the ocean. The unusual pattern of skin pigmentation in the specimen below means that he is always smiling.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
