Pearly and Pig and the Great Hairy Beast

By Sue Whiting
Illustrated by Rebecca Crane

**eBook Only** A fast-paced junior fiction adventure starring a plucky new heroine that has to face her fears to save her parents, her friend and the day!

Pearly Woe is a worrier. She worries about everything, especially that she’ll never be brave enough to become a member of the top-secret group of stealth adventurers – The Adventurologists’ Guild. Pearly also has a special talent – she can talk to animals. Her favourite animal to talk to is her pet pig, called Pig. But with her parents missing, Pig pig-napped and Pearly a stowaway on an icebreaker heading for Antarctica, Pearly’s worries just got REAL.

  • Sue Whiting is a prolific and award-winning children’s book writer, former teacher and publishing manager.
  • First in a new series starring Pearly Woe and Pig. The second book will be releasing in 2023.
  • Pearly's constant (and relatable) worrying is a great opening to talk about mental wellbeing in a way that resonates with kids.
