"Children and adults alike will be delighted by this
brilliantly silly and surreal story" - Booktrust
The first book in the Diaries of Pig series
of chapter books - filled with Pig's hilarious illustrations, wisdom
and awful grammar on every page.
We love Pig (we can't help it), but Pig loves Farmer, and he can't
help it either.
After all, Farmer gives Pig yummy slops and special back scratches,
and calls him Sausage and seems to love him more, the fatter
he gets.
Just as well Pig doesn't speak any Farmer.
But Duck does (Duck's clever like that), and he's determined his
best friend should know the truth.
This is tough for Pig.
But Pig won't just sit there and weep (though we may do, on his
behalf), because there's help from an unexpected quarter: the Evil
Chickens have a plan...

Told in an original, hilarious and unforgettable voice and packed
with Pig's own drawings, this is fresh and silly laugh-out-loud
humour that children (and adults) will love
Author and illustrator Emer Stamp was the Creative Director behind
the cult-hit John Lewis Christmas adverts
Perfect for fans of Tom Gates, Diary of a Wimpy Kid
and the Babe films
"Witty, pacey and perfectly pitched for early readers your
child won't have seen anything like this before". -
"The jovial diary entries of Pig,
and the sheer exuberance of both the telling and the imagination
involved in the plot are on every page and are a sheer delight.
I was not joking when I said that adults will take to this."
- The Bookbag
"Children and adults
alike will be delighted by this brilliantly silly and surreal
story" - Booktrust
