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.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
