In a wry new early reader, the world’s most optimistic pig and his nervous hamster sidekick set out on an exploration to find the Ends of the Earth.

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. As the unlikely duo set off from Tuptown with plenty of tea cakes in tow, Pigsticks is breathless with excitement (and Harold is struggling for breath under all the gear). But 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? Could it be in the last place they’d ever think to look?

Pigsticks was the descendant of lots of famous, noble pigs. One day he decided that he needed to do something important too, just like his forefathers. He decided that he was going to travel to the ends of the earth, and that he would need an assistant. After placing an advert in the local shop window, he was inundated with lots of applicants, but none were suitable. Then Harold, the Postman, showed up to deliver a parcel. Pigsticks decided that he was the right animal for the job, and so the two set off on the adventure together. Pigsticks and Harold, is an entertaining, and highly amusing children’s book. I would aim this book at around the 6-9 year old range. Although it does have 80 pages, it doesn’t have many words on each page, and most of the pages are taken up with black and white illustrations. Both main characters are fun to get to know, and will lead the reader on an adventure. Will they reach the ends of the earth? Well, you will have to read the book to find out. What I will say is, they certainly have a few mishaps on their travels. A great start to the ‘Pigsticks and Harold’ series, with book two, ‘The Tuptown Thief‘ out now too.
