A Piggy Pickle by Jo Simmons


A Piggy Pickle by Jo Simmons

Welcome to Pip Street! The very ordinary place where extraordinary things happen. Quirky black-and-white illustrations throughout as well as fun activity sheets at the back. Who turned out all the lights? Oh, no one - it's a power cut. Which is bad news for usually brave Bobby Cobbler, because he's scared of the dark. And worse luck for Bobby, this is not just one random out of the blue power cut - it's the beginning of a plague of power cuts! What could be causing them? Something on Pip Street isn't right that's for sure and just between you and me, I think it might be to do with that pig with the spooky hypnotic eyes who's living in Jeff the Chalk's house. But that's for Bobby and Imelda to figure out, just as soon as they find their torches.
