Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey

By Alex Milway
Illustrated by Alex Milway

The adventures of Pigsticks, the world's most optimistic pig, and his sidekick Harold, an over-anxious hamster.

Pigsticks and Harold set off on a journey to the Ends of the Earth armed only with a sense of adventure (Pigsticks'), common sense (Harold's), and a lot of cake. They pick their way through jungles, trek across deserts and climb a huge mountain, but the Ends of the Earth are always just out of reach. When their last crumb of cake is stolen and it doesn't look like they'll ever make it home again, they finally find the Ends of the Earth – in the last place they'd ever think to look.

  • The first book in a hilarious new series about an overconfident pig and his nervous best friend.
  • Will appeal to both boys and girls.
  • Features full-colour illustrations packed with visual jokes.

About the author

Alex Milway has always enjoyed making up stories and, after leaving art college, he discovered that he liked to write and illustrate them as well. His interest in furry creatures first reared its head in the The Mousehunter trilogy, where weird and wonderful mice ran riot all over the world. In The Mythical 9th Division, the fur quota got even bigger, as he had to master the art of drawing a troop of yetis whose main purpose was to save the world. His new series, Pigsticks and Harold, features a furry hamster and a decidedly un-furry pig. Alex is now a full-time author-illustrator and works from his home in London, SE20.
