Synopsis

PIG Gets the Black Death (nearly) Set 1 by Barbara Catchpole

PIG hates needles, so he uses his skills to avoid the school vaccinations. But then comes a history lesson on the Black Death. Terrifies, he tries to rejoin the queue - only to find it's not that easy. Surely it's onlly a matter of time before he becomes a victim of the plague. PIG gets the Black Death (nearly) is one of six books in Set One of the Pig series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers 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. PIG gets the Black Death (nearly) is ideal for reluctant readers aged 7 to 12 with a reading age of 8 - 9 years.
