Synopsis

Pig Leaves Home (for a Bit) by Barbara Catchpole

Pig's mum tells him she wants to divorce his dad to be with her new man Bob. Pig doesn't like this - he needs his dad, not Bob - so he decides to run away to Spain to live with his real dad! He thinks it will be easy, but once again things don't go as Pig planned. What happens to children after they are arrested at the airport with somebody else's passport? Boys love PIG! Peter Ian Green has another hilarious adventure in this book, one of the bestselling series 'PIG' by Barbara Catchpole. Coupled with fantastic black-and-white illustrations and an easy-to-read diary format, the laugh-out-loud humour and tale of friendship will appeal to all readers. rs.
