Russell Hoban: The Marzipan Pig, illustrated by Quentin Blake
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 u, 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.
A sweet and funny story from two masters of children's literature. Quentin Blake's touches of buttery yellow and piglet pink throughout the book open up Russell Hoban's story beautifully. This is a treat to share as a bedtime story, or for young readers building their confidence with chapter books.
