Little Pig Figwort

A Picture Book by

Every now and again a picture book comes along that perfectly combines the charming, the sweet, the humorous and the witty with stunning, memorable illustrations and a story line that tickles the reader pink, no matter how young or old they are.

Little Pig Figwort is such a book. Little Pig Figwort just cannot get to sleep, no matter how hard he tries, and realises that part of the problem is that he really is a pig who would rather be having fun than sleeping. So he decides that he should have an adventure, and sets off into the night in search of good times. From the bottom of the ocean (where everyone is very sleepy indeed, and send him packing), to the North Pole (where even the polar bears are dozing) and then finally to the moon, "where the pigs fly high in the silver sky all night, because it's much too shiny and bright to sleep".

Beautiful illustrations (there can be few cuter pigs than Little Pig Figwort), and rhythmic, sing-song text make this stunning and rather special book a must, and ideal for reading together at bedtime. (Ages 3 and over)--Susan Harrison
