The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderfully humorous adventure for Pigsticks and his friends Harold when they decide they must set off on a journey of discovery to the Ends of the Earth. Pigsticks is determined to prove that he has the mettle of his forbears, Harold turns up just in time for an adventure of his lifetime! Pigsticks loves adventure, luckily, Harold has a lot of commonsense – and a great deal of cake! The story of the two intrepid travellers is a delight.

Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey by Alex Milway
Pigsticks and Harold set off on a journey to the Ends of the Earth armed only with a sense of adventure (Pigsticks'), common sense (Harold's), and a lot of cake. They pick their way through jungles, trek across deserts and climb a huge mountain, but the Ends of the Earth are always just out of reach. When their last crumb of cake is stolen and it doesn't look like they'll ever make it home again, they finally find the Ends of the Earth - in the last place they'd ever think to look.
