Let me tell you about one of the the cutest books that you ever will see. 'Big Pig and the Lost Elf' is a new Christmas classic that needs to be in your rotation every holiday season.
Raven Mad Studios to get this book in my hands! And it's here! This gloriously fun, charming AND delightful little gem is finally here!
(at the outset, oh so sadly, the barn yard animals do not want Big Pig's "help", which is kind of like when your 2 year old toddler offers to "help" - it's assistance you're better off without.)
But hey happy day, an elf falls out of the sky! Big Pig vows to help his new friend make his way back to Santa.
(Neither one of them has a particularly keen sense of direction, it turns out.)
Big Pig is named an honorary elf, and he and his new BFF make a Christmas vow to spend every holiday henceforth, together.
Another nice thing (besides the art, besides the story) is that it's a light and not-too-big paperback, that I'm planning on stockpiling and handing out when I need a little gift or something to take to a holiday book exchange. Next year, every kiddo I give gifts to is getting one of these babies.

(I'd say the normal jazz about how the creators sent me this book to review, and that all opinions are my own, but really what happened was that when I got wind that this story was in the works, I got in touch with them and begged for this book! So...yeah.)
