Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey

author/illustrator: Alex Milway

series name:
Candlewick Sparks

Pigsticks is the last in a noble line of explorers, and he’s decided it’s time for him to follow in his forepigs’ footsteps—with an assistant to do the heavy lifting, of course. When his help-wanted ad draws a motley crew of candidates, he chooses a hapless delivery hamster named Harold. After a long trek through jungles, over deserts, and up a giant ice-topped mountain, the last crumb of cake is stolen by a herd of thieving goats, and their goal is nowhere in sight. Will they ever discover the Ends of the Earth?

“An entertaining kickoff to a series of adventures, whether Harold likes it or not.” — Publishers Weekly

author’s comments:
Alex Milway’s interest in furry creatures first reared its head in his Mousehunter trilogy, in which weird and wonderful mice ran riot all over the world. With his Mythical 9th Division series, the author-illustrator mastered the art of drawing a troop of yetis whose main purpose was to save the world. Alex Milway works from his home in London.
