Delicious! May 7 2012

I came across The Marzipan Pig on cable TV years ago. Unfortunately the visual reception was bad--the picture was all zig-zag and I couldn't see a thing. But the narration was SO lovely that I couldn't change the channel.

I've been longing to see it ever since. Now it is on DVD so I got a copy from Amazon to watch with my 10 year-old nephew and 6 year-old niece. I forewarned them it had a couple sad parts but a good ending. They were both A-OK with the whole thing. We were not disappointed--the animation was as charming as the narrative. My niece was captivated by the dancing mouse. And we all enjoyed the poetry and alliteration of the spoken sentiments.

The Marzipan Pig remains a timeless treat. Highly recommended!
An absolutely lovely tale for children July 14 2013
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
I saw this on television when I was 5 years old. At the time I found it very peaceful and calming. My thoughts have returned to it here and there in the years since, until I finally went and bought it again. The narrative is gorgeous, as is the animation. The story is of a marzipan pig who falls out of sight and longs to be found; a mouse eventually discovers him but hungrily eats him. However, the spirit of the marzipan pig still influences all those who come into contact with the mouse, spreading love to the most unexpected places.

According to another reviewer, their daughter had nightmares from this. I find that quite amazing, considering how gentle and soothing it is, but all kids are different after all, and the ends of bell curves are far away. If your child is very sensitive and easily upset by the idea of a mouse eating a pig-shaped sweet, don't let them watch this. Otherwise, they will enjoy this absolutely lovely tale. Animation for children is so loud and bombastic these days. It's nice to have something this soft and pleasing to remind us that there is a certain beauty to be found in well-made mildness.

DVD, The Marzipan Pig Dec 26 2014

Very disappointed. The story was odd--not understandable for children. The seller was great; just didn't like the story.

Jazztime Tale is tops! Oct. 6 2011

Several years ago I had rented this story on VHS for my third grade students, they loved the story about Fats Waller and Ruby Dees narration was captivating. When the local video store closed up I thought it was the end of Jazztime Tale for my students. I located this DVD on Amazon and am thrilled with this purchase.
