Jasmine's dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself.....In this first in the series, Jasmine rescues a tiny piglet from certain death. But Jasmine's parents don't believe in farm animals being pets and insist that Truffle must be sold as soon as he's big enough. So Jasmine begins a campaign to keep him - one that doesn't seem to be going very well as Truffle gets older and ever-closer to market... In the end, it takes two lost guinea pigs and one cold, frosty, nighttime adventure to save Truffle's bacon...
Gleebooks review: Jasmine loves animals, and is perfectly placed to get full exposure to them—she lives on a farm with a farmer father and a veterinarian mother. When she rescues a tiny piglet from a grumpy neighbouring farmer’s sow and her litter, she finds herself having to hide it from her family. What follows next is to be expected… but Jasmine learns there’s more to pigs than she first realises. Helen Peters captures all the fun, and really hard work of life on a farm, and Ellie Snowdon’s illustrations really add a layer of warmth and detail to the book. Louise
