Rarely has a writer’s imagination transported us to a world so personal, so vivid, so immediate and yet so magical . . .
It is man who so often makes himself the enemy,
who destroys the order and supplants love with
fear. It was so then, in medieval Poitou, where,
unseen, the Grand Council of Animals ran the life
of the forest – and where the humans, as humans
do, contrived to interfere. But there was one
animal who could move through all worlds –
through forest, farm and town – and that was the
pig, Plantagenet. It was Plantagenet who warned
the forest of the human threat upon it, and who
helped to plan the battle that ensued. Without him
this would have been a very different story.
THE PIG PLANTAGENET is a tale of wit and
enchantment, to remind us that the world has
always been filled with wonder; a tale of man’s war
with nature, to remind us that we cannot always win.
