It's Pig's birthday party. It's not actually his birthday - that was ages ago, but still, a party's a party! Even better, Pig's real dad has promised to turn up. Will his dad get there in time? Well, Pig has a strop, Tiffany wants to be a pink zombie and a straw donkey explodes. What do you think? Happily, Bob is there to save the day. Boys love PIG! Peter Ian Green has another hilarious adventure in this book, one of the bestselling series 'PIG' by Barbara Catchpole. Coupled with fantastic black-and-white illustrations and an easy-to-read diary format, the laugh-out-loud humour and tale of friendship will appeal to all readers.
