Pow Pow Pig, Book 1: An Unexpected Hero

Pow Pow Pig, Book 1: An Unexpected Hero

Author: Anh Do

Illustrator: Peter Cheong

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

This first book in a new series from best-selling children’s author Anh Do features drawings by brilliant local illustrator Peter Cheong. When Piccolo Pig (aka Pow Pow) applies to work with animal hero organisation CHOC – Creatures Helping Other Creatures – he doesn’t make the A or B team. He finds himself on the Z team instead. Even so, Pow Pow and his team of unlikely animal heroes are called upon to save the world. Chock-a-block full of action, suspense and comedy (with a time machine thrown in for good measure), this is a great read for reluctant and newly independent readers. Peter’s character designs are infinitely appealing and his illustrations steal the show. Bring on book 2.
