The Marzipan Pig, Paperback / softback Book

The Marzipan Pig Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Quentin Blake

Paperback / softback

Description

"There is," said the marzipan pig, "such sweetness in me!"From the inimitable team of Russell Hoban and Quentin Blake, the pair behind Captain Najork and The Twenty Elephant Restaurant, comes an enchanting story of a little pig made of marzipan.

Fallen behind the sofa, nobody hears the lost marzipan pig's cries for help. And, after many months, a mouse discovers him and eats him up, having never known such sweetness.

But a longing to be loved passes from the marzipan pig to the mouse ... and so begins a curious chain of events featuring a dancing owl, a glowing taxi meter, a buzzing bee and a pinky-orange hibiscus flower - all triggered by the little lost marzipan pig.

Each encounter more wonderful and more romantic than the last, just how far will the marzipan's sweetness travel?
