ABOUT THIS BOOK

The life of a truffle-hunting pig is not easy! Unearthing delicious truffles all day without eating any is too hard for Bianca. After her very first bite, she and her piglets are banished to the forest where they meet up with a wolf. Award-winning illustrator Charles Santore–painting in a new style– has penned an original pig’s tale that feels like an old favorite.
