It’s 1420, and the mighty Yongle Emperor loves every inch of the brand new Forbidden City, but most of all he loves PORK! Enter Ping Pong Pig, a plump, pretty and altogether delicious pig, and her nemesis, the Minister of Most Important Things! Will Ping Pong achieve her life’s ambitions, or will they be cut short on a Ming Dynasty platter? Fine out in this crackling tale of trickery, camouflage and porcine pursuit! As with all of the Chinese Calendar Tales, the story highlights some fantastic Chinese culture and history. The Pig occupies the twelfth position in the Chinese zodiac. People belonging to the “Pig” are diligent, compassionate, and generous. When they set a goal, they will devote all the energy to achieving it. In this very last Tale in the series, The Tale of Ping Pong Pig is a story with lots of fun and hidden jokes included, and it is once again brilliantly illustrated by Harry Harrison, Hong Kong’s famous award-winning cartoonist. Let’s come to join us for a fun-filled afternoon of storytelling, games, a quiz and more with author Sarah Brennan.
