Pigsticks and Harold and the Tuptown Thief

By Alex Milway
Illustrated by Alex Milway

Step aside Holmes and Watson – only Pigsticks and Harold can solve the case of the Tuptown Thief!

There’s a thief on the loose in Tuptown, and the annual Butterfly Ball will be cancelled unless someone is brought to justice. Luckily, Pigsticks has crime-fighting in his blood and a magnifying glass in his hand. Will Detective Pigsticks and his keen-eyed assistant Harold solve the crime? And can they do it in time to save the Butterfly Ball?

  • The second book in a hilarious new series about the adventures of Pigsticks, an over-optimistic pig, and his sidekick Harold, a nervous hamster.
  • Perfect for boys and girls who love funny books.
  • 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.
