Waterstones Says

Bursting with festive charm and imagination, this magical adventure written by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Field, revolves around a boy’s determined quest to find his missing toy pig before Christmas Day.

Shortlisted for The British Book Awards 2022 Children's Fiction Book of the Year

One boy and his toy are about to change everything…

Jack loves his childhood toy, Dur Pig. DP has always been there for him, through good and bad. Until one Christmas Eve something terrible happens – DP is lost. But Christmas Eve is a night for miracles and lost causes, a night when all things can come to life… even toys. And Jack’s newest toy – the Christmas Pig (DP’s annoying replacement) – has a daring plan: Together they’ll embark on a magical journey to seek something lost, and to save the best friend Jack has ever known…

A heartwarming, page-turning adventure about one child’s love for his most treasured thing, and how far he will go to find it. A tale for the whole family to fall in love with, from one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

A gorgeously gifty hardback, with full-colour jacket and featuring 9 black and white spreads and decorative inside art from renowned illustrator, Jim Field.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Her best book since Azkaban' - Evening Standard

‘Here, she has given us her Christmas Carol, and the result is a triumph. The clarity, warmth, sympathy and propulsion of her stories are exactly what a child enjoys. Above all, she is a mistress of suspense. When the climax came, in a scene where Jack must choose between hope and despair, I burst into tears.’ - Amanda Craig
