Jasmine's dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself...In the first in the series, A Piglet Called Truffle, Jasmine rescues a tiny little piglet from certain death. But Jasmine's parents don't believe in farm animals being pets and insist that Truffle must be sold as soon as she's big enough. Jasmine is desperate to give Truffle a home for life. And then, one stormy night, disaster strikes...Brilliant story-telling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation. Look out for Jasmine's other adventures!
