‘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!

Critic Reviews

A lively and enjoyable read, perfectly complemented by Adam Stower's charming illustrations

Guardian Best New Children's Books
Critic Reviews

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
Critic Reviews

Pacy, silly and brilliant for boys and girls alike.

Critic Reviews

Engagingly silly wordplay, bumbling burglars and Adam Stower’s diverting drawings make for a winningly frivolous formula
