Synopsis

Pig and the Ice-cream Cake by Barbara Catchpole

It's Pig's birthday party. It's not his birthday - that was ages ago, but still, a party's a party! Even better, Pig's real dad has promised to come. Will his dad get there in time? Well, Pig has a strop, Tiffany wants to be a pink zombie and a straw donkey explodes. What do you think? Set Two of the Pig series is published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Pig reading books all feature Peter Ian Green - although everybody calls him Pig, even his teachers. The 'Pig' reading series offers friendly, fast-paced and extremely funny stories in first-person diary format, for readers who want a great story in a quick read. Set Two of the Pig series is ideal for reluctant readers aged 7 to 12 with a reading age of 8 - 9 years.
