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.

Reviews

Beautiful in its simplicity, this captures the essence of a life; and children, even little ones, cannot help but feel the love that infuses it.

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.
