LoveReading View on The Hog, the Shrew and the Hullabaloo

Night frights! When Harry the Hog is woken in the night by a terrible noise he immediately calls up his best-friend Lin. What can be making such a scary noise? Harry and the little mouse Lil set about trying to find out. Is it Badger? Or Owl? Or Frog? Julia Copus’s rhyming text is deliciously scary as well as comforting.

The Hog, the Shrew and the Hullabaloo Synopsis

It was night in the village - a still, dark night - and Harry the Hog was sleeping tight. In her house at the foot of Piggyback Hill, also asleep, was Candy Stripe Lil.

In their second adventure, Harry and Lil must work out what on earth is making the Hullabaloo outside Harry’s window in the middle of the night. When deep sleeping Harry is woken by a strange noise, he calls on Lil for help. But every time they think they’ve cracked it, outside is a new nocturnal animal making a different sound. If it’s not just Frog, or just Badger, or just Owl, what could it be?

‘An exquisite rhyming tale about a hapless hog who gets lost in the fog. Beautiful illustrations.’   Angels and Urchins

‘Julia Copus is an accomplished poet, and in Hog in the Fog, illustrated by Eunyoung
Seo, she shows what she can do, in lively rhyme, for a young audience’ Observer

‘Take a smidgeon of "The Gruffalo", add a tiny pinch of "Foggy Foggy Forest" and
some truly charming artwork, and you're half way towards imagining how great "Hog
in the Fog" is.’ Read it Daddy!

assuming that this is the first in I can't wait for the next one!’ Serendipity Reviews
