Brilliant time-travelling adventures.Toby shoots back in time to the Second World War, into Fred Barrow’s life, and finds himself hogging all the pig swill, doing his bit for the war effort.

Readers of Horrid Henry and the Horrible Histories will love it and in addition we think that even the most reluctant of readers, particularly boys will really relate to Toby and his historical exploits.

The titles in the series so far and in order are Keeping Sneaky Secrets, Dodging the Donkey Doo, Sludging Through the Sewers, Mucking about with Monkeys, Picking People’s Pockets and Hogging all the Pig Swill.

Synopsis

Toby Tucker: Hogging All The Pig Swill by Valerie Wilding

In this final adventure, Toby shoots back in time to the Second World War, into Fred Barrow’s life, and finds himself hogging all the pig swill, doing his bit for the war effort:

I took a huge load of pig swill round to Len and Kath. They let me help with the pigs sometimes, but I just gave them a scratch (the pigs, not Len and Kath!) When I started all this salvage lark, I said I was going to do my bit by becoming the champion salvager, and by helping people while I did my rounds. Len and Kath need help, so I’ll make sure they’re never short of swill. The pigs love swill. They stick their heads right in it, and snort and snuffle! They’re funny. I know they smell, but you don’t notice after you’ve been round them a bit. It hits you when you first go near the sties, though.

After all this time travelling, will Toby find out who he really is?
