"What an inspiring and heartwarming story! Wonderful book for the entire family!"
When Djabali´s curiosity lands him in deep water away from his family, an unexpected journey of discovery begins. Realising he must “ sink or swim”, the positive piglet learns to trust his own instincts and embrace help from an unlikely array of friends in order to return home.
