Ignatius is a pig with a big appetite and very little patience. When someone tosses a fresh dumpling his way, he grabs it in mid-air and swallows. That dumpling is big and it is hot, and very quickly it is stuck—right in Ignatius’s throat! Desperate for relief, the poor pig races through his little community to reach the cooling water of the ocean. And careening on his way to the sea, he has plenty of near misses, and a few collisions, with local village folk. How much trouble can one pig cause? A playful story with a “you-can’t-catch-me” spirit that celebrates small rural communities, simple living, and silly pigs.
