PIGSTICKS AND HAROLD SERIES by Alex Milway

Alex Milway’s new series about Pigsticks, the world’s most optimistic pig, and his sidekick Harold, an over-anxious hamster.

 

Pigsticks and Harold set off on a journey to the Ends of the Earth armed only with a sense of adventure (Pigsticks), common sense (Harold’s), and a lot of cake. They pick their way through jungles, trek across deserts and climb a huge mountain, but the Ends of the Earth are always just out of reach.

 

When their last crumb of cake is stolen and it doesn’t look like they’ll ever make it home again, they finally find the Ends of the Earth – in the last place they’d ever think to look…

 

The second book in the series, PIGSTICKS AND HAROLD AND THE TUPTOWN THIEF was published in November 2014.

 

 

PIGSTICKS AND HAROLD AND THE TUPTOWN THIEF is the second book in Alex Milway’s new series about Pigsticks, the world’s most optimistic pig, and his sidekick Harold, an over-anxious hamster.

There’s a thief on the loose in Tuptown, and the annual Butterfly Ball will be cancelled unless someone is brought to justice. Luckily, Pigsticks has crime-fighting in his blood and a magnifying glass in his hand. Will Detective Pigsticks and his keen-eyed assistant Harold solve the crime? And can they do it in time to save the Butterfly Ball?

 

 

Alex Milway’s book is a treat, resting on deft characterisation and splashy illustration. Harold plays long-suffering Jeeves to Pigsticks’ self-deluded Wooster. Witty visual jokes abound…as the author builds a wonderfully daft yet coherent fictional world. More please!”
