Russel Hoban: The Marzipan Pig, Illustrated by Quentin Blake (Paperback)
First published in 1986, The Marzipan Pig tells a tale of enduring sweetness. Find out what happens when a marzipan pig, forgotten behind the sofa, is eaten by a mouse. This is just the start of a curious string of events in which we meet a dancing owl, a glowing taxi meter, a buzzing bee. A truly charming story with delightful illustrations from incomparable Quentin Blake.
