The Water Gift and the Pig of the Pig

By Jacqueline Briggs Martin

Illustrated by Linda S. Wingerter


When my son was in high school, he worked on a horse farm. On this farm there happen to live the sweetest pig. This pig would watch Sam as he cleaned the horses’ stalls. The pig, Gracie, seemed to know exactly what was going on as Sam worked. This story reminds me of that pig. I hope you like it too.


Summary by Goodreads.com- Radiant, elegantly textured illustrations capture the very heart of this unusual story about a divining rod, a beloved pig, and a quiet granddaughter with gifts of her own to uncover. Together, word and image reveal that there is indeed much more to this world than what we see.
