The Christmas Pig: A Story of Real Christmas is a fictional Christmas story for children and adults of all ages. Animals come to life as this Christmas story stars animals such as Grace the pig and Della the cow.

When Della, a homesick cow from Delaware, complains to Grace Pig about not having snow for Christmas at her new home in North Carolina, she finds out what a "Real Christmas" is all about, and in the process, she and her new barnyard friends have the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way, the farm animals encounter a blues-singing Mule, a couple named Mary and Joseph who are about to have a baby in an old shed near the barn, Gnarly Possum, the leader of the Dismal Swamp Gang, and Grace Pig's wise old mentor and friend, A. Owl. These and other memorable animal characters are wonderfully brought to life in 23 full-color paintings by Lois Virginia Babb in the pages of this classic illustrated family Christmas book that is destined to be read aloud in countless homes each Christmas Season.

G.T. Blackburn lives in a small town in eastern North Carolina. A fellow Tar Heel by birth and inclination. Temperance Parker currently lives in the South Carolina Low Country.
