A poor French farmer named Pierre has nothing but bad luck. Nothing that is except his beloved big black whiskery pig called Jean-Jacques. One autumn afternoon Pierre and his pig are searching for truffles in the forest, hoping to change their luck when Jean-Jacques comes upon something that turns their fortune right around. Glenda Millard's resonant words and Dee Huxley's wondrous illustrations evoke the breath of an angel in this beautiful, lyrical picture book.
