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.

About the Author

Growing up on a farm in Devon, Emer’s first ambition was to be a vet. But her ambition was cruelly dashed upon the jagged rocks of career failure by her inability to get a grade of any sort at A-Level biology.

Emer is a keen runner, an over-enthusiastic kick-boxer, and a terible speller.
