The Christmas Pig - J. K. Rowling
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 annoying 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...
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.
My Review: Jo has exceptional talent for writing children's books, even books for very young ones. Now, I'm a mom. It's always hard to find new books that would grab my 5-year old's attention long enough. He loves Christmas, he loves pigs, and he loves colors. So basically, this review was "written" by my child. He absolutely loved it. He loves Harry Potter too, but this is more for his age. J.K. Rowling infuses her magic in every word she writes, and the illustrations by Jim Field are so vivid, that they had me, and adult, stare at them.
