About the Author

Nina Bawden is one of today's best writers for both adults and children. She has often used her own childhood experiences in her books - Carrie's War is set in the mining valley in Wales where she lived as an evacuee in wartime. She studied philosophy, politics and economics at Somerville College, Oxford and finished her first novel the year after she took her degree. She won the Guardian Award for Children's Fiction for The Peppermint Pig. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Both these stories are quite wonderful. I first read them some years ago, but when we heard of Nina Bawden's recent death it prompted me to read them again ~ so warm, so true to life, both painful and heart-warming : BRILLIANT, both Joy Peach

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Graham Chapman on 21 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
So beautifully written, it was a pleasure to read aloud to a child. The pace is gentle for much of the book, like a summer afternoon walk, but the story is full of drama, bubbling away, and by the end there are so many emotions and ideas coming to the surface that, like Poll, the girl at the centre of the story, it becomes hard to go on.

My daughter and I loved Carrie's War, but the Peppermint Pig even more. Nina Bawden is, in the word's of a nice Joni Mitchell song, a 'woman of heart and mind'. Young and old, lovers of literature and life, we both recommend this book to you with all our hearts.

Format: Paperback
Poll's father has gone to America and Poll is very sad. She misses her brave,honest father. Everything changes though, when Poll's family moves to the countryside, and takes in a little pig whom they name Johnnie. Johnnie is only the runt of the litter, and costs Mother only one shilling, but Poll, Mother and Lily, George and Theo grow to love the little pink pig, until one horrible day, when life with the pig changes forever. This book is a real treasure. I love the "round" characters. They have many sides and views. I think Poll is a bit like me. Sometimes I'm impatient but I'm never evil. Though the Harry Potter books have more adventure, their characters are very firmly set - Harry and his friends are rather flat characters. They are more like circles, not spheres. "The Peppermint Pig" is a must-have book.
