A lively and engaging Starters title for beginner readers from author-illustrator Colin West, with a friendly text and stylish two-colour illustrations.Big Wig is part of Walker Starters, the wonderfully fun and friendly series for beginner readers.There once lived a giant called Big Wig, who always wore a bright ginger wig. One day, a gust of wind blows Big Wig's precious wig off his head, and carries it far, far away... This is a charming story with a brilliant twist at the end, told through a range of writing styles, including hand-lettered speech and thought bubbles. The illustrations, which appear on every page, are lively and stylish, and play an active part in helping children understand the text.
