A Piglet Called Truffle by Helen Peters & Ellie Snowdon (Illustrator) #WinterReads


31277637Jasmine’s dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself…

In the first in the series, A Piglet Called Truffle, Jasmine rescues a tiny little piglet from certain death. But Jasmine’s parents don’t believe in farm animals being pets and insist that Truffle must be sold as soon as she’s big enough.

Jasmine is desperate to give Truffle a home for life. Perhaps a heroic rescue on a freezing, stormy night will show that Truffle is truly part of the family?

How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review

Genre: Contemporary

Previously reviewed: The Secret Hen House Theatre

Review: This is a warm-cuddly-cute-happy-book. I’m not sure how else to describe it. In short, it’s a sweet and lovely story and you just enjoy from start to finish.

I read this in the middle of various doctor/hospital appointments so it was just the kind of antidote I needed. The book is quite short (but the story and characters feel complete) and it has the ending you, as reader, expect but still are really happy had happened.

A Piglet Called Truffle made me smile. Everyone needs books like that.

Recommend it?
