When Djabali’s curiosity lands him in deep water far from his family, he begins an unexpected journey of discovery. Realizing he has to sink or swim, the positive piglet learns to trust his own instincts and accept help from an unlikely array of friends, including a stray dog and a magpie, in order to find his way back home. This illustrated story, set in Spain, is based on a real-life encounter between the author, a baby boar, and an abandoned hunting dog. Djabali’s adventures will transport readers to southwest Spain while inspiring both young and old to scratch beneath the surface of life and ponder over the power of empathy, courage, and trust. This hybrid story includes back matter, a glossary, a Spanish audio narration via QR code, and watercolour illustrations.
