On a wintry night, all the barn animals reminisce about what important roles their great-great-great grandparents had played at the manger when a special child was born. Pippin the pig--whose ancestors weren't there--doesn't know this most familiar of Christmas stories and keeps asking questions. "What baby?" "What child?" The other animals ignore her; after all, she's only a pig. But Pippin eventually saves the day when a woman with her young child gets lost in a snowstorm and needs help. Werner Zimmermann's warm illustrations capture the animals emotions perfectly and make this a Christmas story to treasure forever.

When Della, a homesick cow from Delaware, complains to Grace Pig about not having snow for Christmas at her new home in North Carolina, she finds out what Real Christmas is all about and in the process, she and her new barnyard friends have the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way, the farm animals encounter a blues-singing Mule; a couple named Mary and Joseph who are about to have a baby in an old shed near the barn; Gnarly Possum, the leader of the Dismal Swamp Gang; and Grace Pig s wise old mentor and friend, A. Owl. These and other memorable animal characters are wonderfully brought to life in 23 full-color paintings by Lois Virginia Babb in the pages of this classic illustrated family Christmas book that is destined to be read aloud in countless homes each Christmas Season. As J. I. Packer writes in his FOREWORD, The Christmas Pig is a fable for all children whose imaginations let them enjoy talking animals, and for all grown-ups who have not grown too stuffy to do the same .The story is great fun, it s gorgeously illustrated, and the after taste it leaves is as sweet as it is serious; for the new story beams light on an old story which has been described as the best story that was ever heard, and indeed, the only real story that has ever been. In telling the story of the first Christmas -- and what happens afterwards -- this unusual Christmas book both entertains and informs. The Christmas Pig is not just a children s book, as Dr. Packer has pointed out. It is an illustrated Christian animal story for children and adults of all ages, from nine years old to ninety. With its cast of unforgettable animal characters, it is especially suited for parents and grandparents who enjoy reading a Christmas story to children at holiday gatherings. The Christmas Pig: A Story of Real Christmas is Christian fiction that can be enjoyed by all readers during the Christmas Season, making it an ideal gift to be treasured by family and friends alike.

The pig family is distraught Christmas is coming, and they have no money to buy gifts Whatever shall they do? Luckily for them, Angel Pig pays them a visit, and shows them the true meaning of Christmas. The pigs set about making gifts, baking food, and embracing the holiday spirit. Jan Waldron is also the author of John Pig's Halloween and two books for adults. She says she was inspired by a drawing on a Christmas card of David McPhail's and by fond memories of "holidays my mother gave us. Our kitchen turned into a vivid explosion of colors, smells, and tastes - a tradition I hope I have passed to my children." David McPhail is an author-illustrator beloved for his many books about wonderful characters, some of whom have been pigs. He says that for a Christmas card one year he drew "a little pig with wings and and oversize gown. Someone told me to write about her. I tried but I couldn't. I lamented that fact to Jan. A few days later she said, 'How's this sound?' And that was the beginning of Angel Pig and the Hidden Christmas. In my pictures for this book, I've worked very hard to give Angel Pig the life she deserves."
