Enough cake and pirate grog for everyone!

With at least one joke on every page, Pigsticks and Harold and the Pirate Treasure is the third book in the series about this lovable pair.

When Tuptown is threatened by Sir Percival, a distant relative of Pigsticks and thorn in his trotter since they were piglets, our heroes need to raise a fortune to buy it back. Luckily, Pigsticks' great-great-grandpig was a pirate-Pigbeard the Awesome- and legend has it that he buried a fortune in gold and jewels one dark and stormy night. Problem solved- they just need to find it- and become pirates themselves!

Full of wonderful illustrations including maps, cross sections and sections like cartoon strips, Pigsticks is so appealing. Harold (who I believe is a hamster) and Pigsticks (the pig) are very different characters, showing how opposites attract and work together to make things happen.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a funny story where the good guys come out on top, the Pigsticks and Harold series are not to be missed. i look forward to their next adventure!
