Synopsis

The Pesky Pig Panic 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. Utterly charming and delightful Mel Giedroyc

About the Author

Jo Simmons began her working life as a journalist. Her first fiction series for children, Pip Street, was inspired by her own kids' love of funny fiction, and two Super Loud Sambooks followed. In addition to children's fiction, she co-wrote a humorous parenting book, Can I Give Them Back Now?: The Aargh To Zzzzzz Of Parenting, published by Square Peg. Jo lives in Brighton with her husband, two boys and a scruffy formerly Romanian street dog. I Swapped My Brother on the Internet is her first book for Bloomsbury. Nathan Reed has been a professional illustrator since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2000. He has illustrated Christopher Edge's How to Write Your Best Story Ever and the Elen Caldecott's Marsh Road Mysteries Series. His most recent picture book is Samson the Mighty Flea by Angela McAllister. He was shortlisted for the Serco Prize for Illustration in 2014. When he's not illustrating he can be found with his two boys and a football on Peckham Rye Common.
