The Christmas Pig Introduction

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Dur Pig
Dur Pig was a small toy pig made of the same material as a soft towel. He had little plastic beans in his tummy, which made him fun to throw. His squishy trotters were exactly the right size to wipe away a tear. When his owner, Jack, was very young, he fell asleep every night sucking Dur Pig’sear.


Dur Pig got his name because when Jack started to talk, he said ‘dur pig' instead of ‘the pig’. When new, Dur Pig had been salmony-pink, with shiny black plastic eyes, but Jack couldn’t remember Dur Pig looking like that. Dur Pig had surely always been as he was now: greyish and faded, with one ear stiff from all the sucking.

Dur Pig’s eyes fell out, leaving tiny holes in his face for a while, but then Jack’s mum, who was a nurse, sewed little
buttons in place of the missing plastic beads. When Jack came home from the nursery that afternoon, Dur Pig was lying on the kitchen table wrapped up in a woolen scarf, waiting for Jack to take off the little bandage covering
his eyes. Mum had even made Dur Pig a set of medical notes: ‘DP Jones. The operation to attach buttons. Surgeon: Mum.’

After his eye operation, everyone started calling Dur Pig ‘DP’ for short. From the time he was two years old, Jack would never go to bed without DP, which often caused problems, because when bedtime came, DP was usually nowhere to be found. Sometimes it took Mum and Dad a long time
