A Piglet Called Truffle


The first in a fantastic series of animal stories for younger readers by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted author Helen Peters, with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Ellie Snowdon.

Jasmine’s dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself…

When Jasmine sees a tiny, unloved piglet left to fend for itself, she knows it will die without her help. So she smuggles it home to her farm to nurse it back to health. But she can’t keep Truffle forever, and then, one stormy night, disaster strikes…

Brilliant storytelling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation. Perfect for readers aged seven and up.

Check out Jasmine’s other adventures: A Duckling Called Button, A Sheepdog Called Sky, A Kitten Called Holly and many more!

“This short, sweet story of a little girl looking after the runt of the litter is a perfect early reader for young bookworms growing in confidence. With beautiful illustrations from Ellie Snowdon and the warm storytelling that we’ve come to expect from farm girl Helen Peters, this is a lovely little book that is the start of a welcome new series from the ever-brilliant Nosy Crow.”
