Piggy Hero

Piggy Handsome is a very confident guinea pig with a hugely inflated ego – he hails from a long line of very famous guinea pigs. But sadly Handsome STILL hasn’t achieved world renown.

Well, now he has a new plan to get his name on the telly – he’ll be someone’s hero! When pushing Jeff Budgie off a roof and ‘saving’ him fails spectacularly, Handsome is at his wits’ end. Little does he know, however, that the dastardly Dixons have escaped prison and are seeking revenge for their capture. What’s more, Dan and Dolly’s ghastly greed has led them to kidnapping, and now someone really DOES need saving! Can Piggy Handsome save the day for real? And will it earn him the fame he so desperately desires?

All in one day trip to the seaside!

Permit me lovely readers to take you back in time. The first thing that I want you to do is to close your eyes and breathe deeply. Okay, great, now open them again very slowly. Are you ready? Good, then let us begin.

Shiny Pippin and the Broken Forest

Permit me, lovely readers, to take you on a journey. Firstly though, wherever you are, it is important that you should be comfy. For example, if you are in bed, make sure there are no spiky pieces of Lego under your bum bum. That sort of thing simply won’t do . . .

Pippin’s just an ordinary little girl who lives with her ordinary little granny in the ordinary little town of Funsprings. Or so she thinks. When some rather terrible goings on start occurring, Granny is forced to reveal a secret – she used to be a secret crime fighter! And on top of that, Pippin has a special gift – she is Shiny, and can talk to animals. Hurray!

But life’s not all fun times and lemonade and monster munch for tea. Not only has all the water gone, the animals are disappearing too. Someone as rotten as a pig fart in a jar must be behind all this, and it’s up to Pippin to find out who. Armed with her new power and some new friends to boot, Pippin will confront kidnappers, evil scientists and would-be diamond thieves in this fantastic new series from Harry Heape (brilliantly illustrated by Rebecca Bagley too, you lucky things!).
