Old Pig and Granddaughter have lived together for a long, long time. They share everything, including the chores, until the day when Old Pig does not get up as usual for breakfast. Calmly she puts her affairs in order, then she takes Granddaughter on a last long walk - looking and listening, smelling and tasting.
Old Pig and Granddaughter say goodbye in the best way they know.
A tender story of living and loving, giving and receiving; a glorious celebration of the world.
*A very special and moving picture book, Old Pig has been shortlisted for Australian awards including the Picture Book category of the CBC Awards, the ACT COOL Awards, the YABBA Awards + the Picture Book Division of the Book Design Awards.*
