Description
Big Pig is John Henry's cherished piglet. But there comes a time in every piglet's life when new experiences and places must be faced, so Big Pig is moved out to the pighouse. But Big Pig is cold and lonely, and wants to return home. John Henry does his best to ease the transition for his oversized piglet and Big Pig does ultimately learn to be more independent - 'for that's what big pigs do' - but will John Henry learn to live on his own, too?
This warm, reassuring tale about growing up will charm children and grown-ups alike.
