Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey

By Alex Milway
Illustrated by Alex Milway

“An entertaining kickoff to a series of adventures, whether Harold likes it or not.” — Publishers Weekly

Pigsticks is the last in a noble line of explorers, and he’s decided it’s time for him to follow in his forepigs’ footsteps—with an assistant to do the heavy lifting, of course. When his help-wanted ad draws a motley crew of candidates, he chooses a hapless delivery hamster named Harold. After a long trek through jungles, over deserts, and up a giant ice-topped mountain, the last crumb of cake is stolen by a herd of thieving goats, and their goal is nowhere in sight. Will they ever discover the Ends of the Earth?

  • The first book in a hilarious new series about Pigsticks, a very confident pig, and his sidekick, the somewhat nervous hamster Harold.
  • Indomitable Pigsticks and hapless Harold set off on an adventure to the ends of the earth in a story that is sure to appeal to boys as well as girls.
  • The text is just right for newly independent readers, who will appreciate the humorous text and the wealth of visual jokes in the artwork.
