Me I is Pig. I is 465 sunsets old, but every day I gets older, so this fact is only correct right now, on the day I is writing.
I live in Pig House. Pig House is next to CHICKEN HOUSE, which is opposite Cow Shed, which is not too far from Duck Pond.

Review by Liss Norton
Did you know chickens are evil? Read this book and you'll find out all about their dastardly and cunning ways from Pig himself. The story is funny, fast-paced and there's lots of farting in it, which should appeal to most children.
Pig is an endearingly naive character who thinks Farmer gives him lots of lovely slops out of kindness. When his friend Duck tells him the shocking truth – that Farmer plans to chip-chop him up and eat him – Pig is forced to make his escape. But the only way out of the farm is in a trocket, a poo-powered rocket that the evil chickens have made out of a tractor. The trocket is programmed to fly to Pluto.
The story is bursting with zaniness. There are alien garden gnomes, crazy disguises, a stowaway, a flock of itchy sheep and a sat-nav that speaks Picken (Pig language spoken by evil chickens). Add in Pig's kind-heartedness, his determination not to look like a Softie Pig and his inability to leave any scrap of food uneaten and you've got a great book. The cartoons on nearly every page and the well-spaced writing make this a book that even reluctant readers will enjoy. Not to be missed.
