Pigsticks and Harold: Lost in Time!

Publisher: Walker Books

Pigsticks the pig is desperate to win the Best Invention competition at Tuptown Science Fair, but the spaceship he’s working on isn’t going to plan. When he stumbles across a rusty old time-machine created by his Great-aunt Ada Lovepig, he persuades his reluctant hamster friend Harold to accompany him to the future, where he’s sure they will learn how to build the best spaceship ever.

However, the rickety time machine is unpredictable, and when the lever falls off mid-flight, they lurch back in time to a variety of perilous situations. They meet an angry prehistoric Tyrannosaurus Pig, are chased by Cleopigtra from Ancient Egypt, and even see the Great Fire of London, before they finally gatecrash a Viking party.

Fast-paced and funny, this chapter book with full-page graphic-novel style artwork is a hilarious romp through history. This is the fourth book in the fabulously funny Pigsticks and Harold series, which would particularly appeal to reluctant readers.
