The Christmas Pig
Not my favorite JK Rowling book by any stretch. Don't get me wrong it's unique and inventive but it also seems to be trying too hard. Also, I expected it to be a lot more Christmassy based off the title and the cover but really it was a kids fantasy adventure. When a young boy loses his beloved toy on Christmas Eve he discovers that he can travel to the Land of the Lost to try and recover his beloved DP (a horrible name). The Christmas Pig, a sad replacement for the toy he lost, takes him to this mysterious land full of lost things and they most go on a quest and try to evade the scary Loser who tries to destroy lost things. It's ok. Kids would enjoy hearing this as a bedtime story but it's nothing to write home about.
