All the animals in the barn know about Christmas. But it takes one little pig to show them what it really means.

A heartwarming story of hope and the true Christmas spirit.

Raves & reviews:

"Acclaimed children's author Jean Little . . . turns the exhaustion of Christmas on its head to produce what should become a minor classic . . .[T]old with a sure-footed sense of storytelling economy. Little's story is perfectly complemented by Werner Zimmermann's sensitive pencil-and-watercolour illustrations . . . [the animals'] faces are very expressive." —Quill & Quire
