The Peppermint Pig, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Johnnie was only the runt of the litter, a little peppermint pig.

He'd cost Mother a shilling, but somehow his great naughtiness and cleverness kept Poll and Theo cheerful, even though it was one of the most difficult years of their lives.

Review by

I could write about this book all day. Who knew this would be such an intriguing book? The cover didn’t lead me to think this. The title didn’t lead me to think this. But I knew from page one that this was a special book.It’s a little story of a family that is set around the turn of the century. The father has to leave his job abruptly and decides to pursue a new career in America. The mother and four children are left in England, staying with two elderly aunts, while the father gets settled. There’s lots in this little story...a ghost story...a friendship with an impoverished child...a long sickness...and, of course, a pig.
