“There is,” said the marzipan pig, “such sweetness in me!”

Fallen behind the sofa, nobody hears the lost marzipan pig’s cries for help. And, after many months, a mouse discovers him and eats him up, having never known such sweetness. But a longing to be loved passes from the marzipan pig to the mouse … and so begins a curious chain of events featuring a dancing owl, a glowing taxi meter, a buzzing bee and a pinky-orange hibiscus flower – all triggered by the little lost marzipan pig.

Each encounter more wonderful and more romantic than the last, just how far will the marzipan’s sweetness travel?
