Old Pig

Author(s): Margaret Wild


Old Pig and Granddaughter share everything, including the chores, until the day when Old Pig says "I have a lot to do. I must be prepared." Granddaughter knows that her beloved Old Pig will soon be gone— but her love and memories will still be there. This tender, softly illustrated story of love and loss will comfort children dealing with death for the first time. "In a few short pages, shows that death can be a celebration of life and a loved one's contributions to it." — "School Library Journal."
