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… A perfect animal story for younger readers by Helen Peters, with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Ellie Snowdon.
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.
Great for Ages 6-8.
