Description

One boy and his toy are about to change everything....

Jack loves his childhood toy Dur Pig. DP has always been there for him, through good and bad. Until one Christmas Eve something terrible happens - DP is lost. But Christmas Eve is a night for miracles and lost causes, a night when all things can come to life...even toys. And Jack’s newest toy - the Christmas Pig (DP’s annoying replacement) - has a daring plan: Together they’ll embark on a magical journey to seek something lost and to save the best friend Jack has ever known....

A heartwarming adventure about one child’s love for his most treasured thing and how far he will go to find it. A tale for the whole family to fall in love with, from one of the world’s greatest storytellers.

A poor imitation of The Velveteen Rabbit.

Very disappointing. It took far too long to reach a point of interest and was just a poor imitation of The Velveteen Rabbit.

A book I’d given to my children

Although I’m yet to have my own children, I can’t help but make a mental note of buying the physical book and giving it to my potential children for Christmas in the future. I’ve loved Rowling’s works, and despite Christmas Pig being a children’s book, I purchased it as soon as it came out. Just like the Ickabog, this one didn’t disappoint. Perhaps, even more so, it ignited my inner child. I could appreciate the character’s complexity and the moral of treating everything in our lives as if they had feelings and souls. Coming from an East Asian background, we are taught something similar. Not to be wasteful and appreciate not only the thing but also the craftsmanship. This book resonated in a way that when I finished it, I looked around my room and admired just how wonderful it feels to be surrounded by objects of love.

Amazing!!

Loved every part of it! The emotions are conveyed beautifully and the themes are both for kids and adults. I listened to The Christmas Pig with my kids and it was wonderful to watch them pay so much attention to a narrative.

great read

it is a great book but it can be boring at times. at the start it has some heavy topics but over time it gets a little more childish. but overall it is a great Christmas read. would recommend for older children because it does have some scary parts.

everything is great

the characters are great with really unique personalities. the story is also very good. i took 1 star out because it took a little long to get to the main point, but other than that, it was great! I definitely recommend it for any age.

An Epic Adventure which Kindles Youthful Christmas Spirit for All Ages

This story is told in such a visual manner. Every character truly comes to life! I loved the fictional places and personalities created for this story and their connections to each other. I listened to the audio version to decide if my 11 year old niece would find the story content too juvenile or if she is too young and would miss the details that adults love and relate to. I decided I would recommend for all ages, but for 11 and under I think an adult listening along could help hold a child’s interest for all 59 chapters.

More Scary & Violent Than "Heartwarming Adventure"

I thought this one was going to be a page-turner for me. and in that I was really disappointed. The story got off to a great start, and in the first few chapters, I was thinking about buying the book to read to some of my grandkids during the holidays -- perhaps a new annual tradition, or perhaps letting them listen to the Audible book on my phone. Then a lost item was violently shoved kicking and screaming down a garbage chute, and that was the last I considered that. It's not that there are none of the heartwarming moments promised in the synopsis ("A heartwarming adventure about one child’s love for his most treasured thing and how far he will go to find it."), there are just many, many more scary or frightening moments and quite a few that are downright violent. About a third of the way through the story, I actually googled the age recommendation for the book, which Amazon says is "Recommended for ages 9-10 and up because there are some bigger life concepts that younger ones may not grasp." Yes, life concepts, certainly -- along with the concept of being violently captured, dragged off to the monster's lair, and then eaten by the monster ... or rather having the "livening" part sucked out and consumed, and then the remains burnt. It seems more suitable for a Halloween setting than Christmas.

Is it a good story from a good storyteller? Yes, but not so engrossing that I did not want to turn it off. Don't think you're going to get anything in this story that harkens back to the cleverness of the Harry Potter novels, which I would imagine J.K. Rowling is going to struggle with for the rest of her career.

From a technical standpoint, some of the narrative and spoken parts are impossible to understand because of either the musical score, the noises that are part of the story, and the accents, tone, and timber of the voices.

Worth the credit to listen, but as you can tell, I was disappointed. Many of the books in my Audible Library I've listened to more than once. I'm not sure if this will be one of those.

How is this the same person who wrote Harry Potter?

I really really wanted to like this story…. I grew up with Harry Potter and still love those books. This one started off with a semi-promising story line but it devolved onto something that felt like a nightmare you’d have after been cooped up and isolated in your house for too long… moralistic paper clips and old western spectacles crying about being lost by their owners… it was like listening to a schizophrenic’s subconscious stream of thought. I want my 6 hours back please.

Some voices hard to understand

Well, it’s a good story that takes awhile to get going. I ended up enjoying it very much, but I couldn’t understand some of the characters because of the extreme computer manipulations (or mutilations, for me), especially the Loser. Unfortunately, i had to use so many rewinds, it was pretty ridiculous. The narrator and voices of Jack and CP were fantastic.

Distracting Noises

The story itself was fun, but I did not particularly enjoy the listening experience. The main narrator was good; however, I did not care for the ensemble cast. Jack’s voice was difficult to understand. Plus, I found the computerized sound effects to be extremely grating. All the background noise distracted from the story.

Over produced

The story is sweet and the main narrator is wonderful.
The added sounds are just noise and for me, offer little to the story overall.
A good number of the minor voices were very hard to hear.

You have to be JOKING, This story should NOT be to

I was excepting a cute Christmas time story. What I got was a mix of Alice in Wonderland and someone ON ACID TRIP. The store is dark and creepy and not in a scaring Halloween way. I am not sure what the story was to teach a young person. Within the first hour you learned MEN are BAD Women are GOOD. IT's ok and right to be a spoiled child and act out without repercussions. I guess that is true in todays society anyway.
I bought this book thinking it would be something good to listen to with my nephew (age 7) on a long ride. What I got was a TON of question on Why are the dads' so mean? How come the boy doesn't live with his dad? Why do those kids act so bad? After about 1:30 of listening to the book, he asked me to PLEASE put something else on. I agreed, but asked if he like the book. "NO It's mean and I don't like the people in it. They are all bad." WELL SAID.
As far as the 3D hype, not worth it. Sound effects doesn't make it 3D
BOTTOM LINE - I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Takes an adult back to being a kid

As we age we forget what it is like when you were a child. This brings back wonderful memories of time long gone and forgotten. A must read for adults who have forgotten that wonderful time.
