PIG Complete Set 1 Pack by Barbara Catchpole

Meet Peter Ian Green, P.I.G for short. All his friends and family call him Pig. Even the teachers. Pig is 12 and is small for his age. He has sticky-out ears and bright red hair which is also sticky up. He attends Coalpits Road High (or 'The Pits' as it is known locally) and lives with his mum. She is a single mum, but Pig says she looks more like a double mum or even a treble mum. The PIG reading books are all supported by workbooks containing workcheets specific to each title, as well as detailed teacher's notes and advice on working with the resources. Complete Set 1 Pack includes all six reading books and two workbooks in Set One. The Pig series is 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 is a series designed for children ages 7 to 12 with a reading age of 8 to 9. It is ideal for reluctant readers and struggling readers.
