About the Book

'Jeffry, I’m no mere guinea pig! I’m a Handsome. And Handsomes have always been famous. I simply cannot be the only Handsome in history to not be famous.'

Piggy Handsome is a very confident Guinea pig with a hugely inflated ego - he hails from a long line of very famous Guinea pigs. But sadly Handsome hasn't yet achieved world renown. With the help of gruff-talking Jeffry the budgie and the inadvertent efforts of two dastardly villains Dan and Dolly Dixon, Handsome might realise his dream, get in the papers and save the day - without even realising. All in one day trip to the seaside!

  • Pip Jones

    Pip Jones lives in East London with her partner, her two daughters and a real invisible cat (it doesn't catch mice, but it doesn't need a litter tray either, so there are pros and cons). She writes a lot. She even owns a writing cloak! And she spends days on end working out how to get good rhymes, such as 'snuffle' and 'kerfuffle', into stories. Pip won the inaugural Greenhouse Funny Prize in 2012 with Squishy McFluff, The Invisible Cat, her first book.

“A lively and enjoyable read, perfectly complemented by Adam Stower's charming illustrations”
- Guardian Best New Children's Books
“There’s really nothing sweet or saccharine about Piggy and therein lies his charm; a modern animal hero with plenty of bite.”
- Observer Children's Book of the Week
