A Spot of Bother

By Jonathan Emmett
Illustrated by Vanessa Cabban

Will our hero ever be a perfectly pristine pig again?

Pig is very proud of his neat appearance, so he's horrified to discover a spot of squashed cherry on his side. But when his farmyard friends try to help – with disastrous results – the spot of bother soon becomes a truly calamitous catastrophe! Children will love following the exploits of Cow, Goat, Sheep and Pig in this hilarious pig-ture book romp.

  • Brilliantly entertaining follow-up to the acclaimed The Pig's Knickers.
  • "An entertaining and funny story with a joyous message about sharing your feelings with friends and learning that it is what is on the inside that counts." - The Bookseller on The Pig's Knickers
