Pig #1: The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig

Tom Gates meets Chicken Run meets Mr Gum – but crazier!

We love Pig (we can’t help it). Pig loves Farmer, and he can’t help it either. After all, Farmer gives Pig yummy slops and special back scratches. He calls him Sausage and loves him more, the fatter he gets. But should you trust someone who calls you Roast Pork? Pig thinks so. But clever Duck knows better. He’s determined his best friend should know the horrid truth… A story of greedy farmers, evil chickens, hog roasts, space rockets and a pig who’ll tickle your ickle-wickle pork chops. Genius. With trotters.

“A sheer delight.” The Bookbag

“Witty, pacey and perfectly pitched.” Junior

    I think this book is very funny and hilarious and one of the best books I’ve ever read. Pig talks funny all the time and he talks about poop a lot. I also like when pig finds duck in the trocket toolbox because duck talks funny when he’s in the toolbox.

    I thought this book was hilarious! Pig writes his diary in pig language which at first takes some getting used to. His funny expressions such as “THE EVIL CHICKENS” show his perfect imagination. I loved reading about his “yummy slops”! Pig gives weekdays different names, like Fazzleday and Dibbleday, which I really found funny. Pig’s diary is full of his secrets, embarrassing moments and his adventures. Please read this book, I am begging you. It is the most hilarious book on earth!
