Destined to be a classic, the first children's book from Kathleen Watkins (aka Nanakit) brings to life the Pigin stories she created for her five beloved grandchildren.

Have you met Pigin?

Pigin lives in Howth, a beautiful seaside town on Dublin Bay, and he is a very popular pig about town. He is friendly, curious, impeccably dressed and has the nicest manners a pig could possibly have. Join Pigin and his friends, Sammy Seal, Sally Seagull, the Badger of Ballsbridge and the fairies who live in Howth Castle, on their many adventures.

Story 1: Pigs Can't Fly, but They Can Swim!

Story 2: Pigin's Magical Midnight Adventure

Story 3: A Day to Wear a Top Hat

In these three stories Pigin learns how to swim, goes on a magic carpet ride and even gets to meet the President of Ireland!

But best of all is coming home to tell Nanakit all about it

Pign possesses a winning combination of decorum and joie de vivre, a great role model. Suggs' illustrations have a suggestion of Beatrix Potter, small and intricate, enhancing the generous text, which is amply surrounded by white space. Genuinely whimsical. -- Kirkus Reviews "Kirkus Reviews"
