The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig

The first book in the Pig series of chapter books in diary form – with Pig’s hilarious illustrations 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…

children will laugh themselves silly with Pig’s unique voice, terrible grammar, and super funny illustrations throughout each book.

Our Review Panel says...

I first read this book about a year ago and I thought it was brilliant. It’s a great book to read aloud because the way Pig speaks is so cool. I also loved the hierarchy of animals in the farm. The chickens are a particular delight.
