The Christmas Pig Kindle Edition
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 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...

I couldn't put it down and enjoyed finding out how Jo got the inspiration for the book. Will be buying more copies as xmas presents
In short, its about the bond a child can have with a soft toy and also… something about how “the chosen one” isn’t necessarily the hero (she’d already written 7 books about that after all)
Jo is fantastic at creating other worlds and the story just flows
