Synopsis

Old Pig by Margaret Wild

Old Pig and Granddaughter have lived together for a long time. They share everything, including the chores, until the day when Old Pig does not get up as usual for breakfast. Calmly she puts her affairs in order, then she takes Granddaughter on a last, long walk - looking and listening, smelling and tasting. That night, Old Pig and Granddaughter say goodbye in the best way they know. A tender story of living and loving, giving and receiving; a glorious celebration of the world.

Beautiful in its simplicity, this captures the essence of a life

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