This story is about a little lonely marzipan pig that falls behind a couch and whose feelings off love reach out to a little mouse, a hibiscus flower , an owl and a bee in a series of events that occur after he was eaten. ( Loooooveeeee! They all say). A symbolic story of love, its fleeting moments of happiness and sweetness. If you do not know what marzipan is... it is a sweet made of almond paste and sugar and marzipan pigs are a symbol of good luck in Germany, often given as gifts during holidays.
We made our own Marzipan Pig too!
And just because I was curious...
