"Rosalie and Truffle" is an endearing tale of love, shown from both sides. Rosalie's story begins at the front of the book, Truffle's at the back, and both versions meet in the middle. With simple, poetic text and whimsical illustrations, "Rosalie and Truffle" is the perfect gift for the one you love. Rosalie is a pig, Truffle is a boar. Rosalie dreams of love, Truffle of luck. One fateful day, they find each other under the blooming apple tree, and there is dreaming and sighing and bliss. Both are discouraged to meet again by well meaning, yet undermining, friends and relatives. Rosalie's friends think she can't get involved with the first boar she meets. And Truffle's friends think he needs to play the field. As time goes by, the longing pigs improve on their lifestyles and realize that neither material growth nor physical perfection guarantees happiness. They return to the apple tree and reunite.
