Summary

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 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.

Fun

I really enjoy this story. I've seen lots of people say they would like it to be a movie. I personally don't think it would be a good movie but the story was good. It was very emotional. I'm glad I listened to the audio book and didn't read the book. I feel the production and sounds really added to the story.

I hate 'performances'.

Good story, and the main reader was excellent. It was all very much let down by the other Actors. The sound levels were all over the place - I either had to have the narrator shouting, or miss half the other voices. Such a shame.

worth persisting with

The first few chapters were quite different and I was alittle worried about where the story was going, for my 10 year old reading! however once the story started to grow it became a wonderful journey. my son and I really enjoyed it.

Lovely Christmas story and wonderfully narrated. I couldn’t put it down. Characters were voiced perfectly and will definitely be one to listen to each Christmas. And I’m mid 40’s!!!!!!
