The Christmas Pig – J.K. Rowling ★★★★

Blurb; A heartwarming, page-turning adventure about one child’s love for his most treasured thing, and how far he will go to find it. A tale for the whole family to fall in love with, from one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

One boy and his toy are about to change everything…

Jack loves his childhood toy, Dur Pig. DP has always been there for him, through good and bad. Until one Christmas Eve something terrible happens — DP is lost. But Christmas Eve is a night for miracles and lost causes, a night when all things can come to life… even toys. And Jack’s newest toy — the Christmas Pig (DP’s replacement) — has a daring plan: Together they’ll embark on a magical journey to seek something lost, and to save the best friend Jack has ever known…

My Review; This is one I got for Christmas. I will never be to old for J.K Rowling or children’s books. I absolutely loved this. Very similar to toy story with objects down in the land of lost coming to life. Set my imagination on fire. Beautiful illustrations throughout. Short chapters. Easy reading. A story about a boy trying to find his lost pig. Heartbreaking in parts. But he’s a strong determined character and learns a few lessons along the way. Highly recommend! A well deserved four stars.
