Harry the hamster is ill, so Mum and Pig take him to the vet. That cost thirty quid. Then Suki got her hand stuck down the drain on the High Street and they had to call the fire brigade to get her out. Suki's (ex)-boyfriend Kim and fireman Sam (I know!) end up in a fight. Then Gran got herself arrested whilst skateboarding and she lost her teeth. Somebody lost Vampire Baby, too. Not bad for the finale. It's almost like on TV! Pig's Season's Finale is one of six books in Set One of the Pig series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. The Pig reading books all feature Peter Ian Green - although everybody calls him Pig, even his teachers.

Pig's Season's Finale is ideal for reluctant readers aged 7 to 12 with a reading age of 8 - 9 years.
