Batpig: When Pigs Fly: eBook (Fixed Layout)

By Rob Harrell

Some pigs are born great, other pigs have greatness thrust upon them.

Batpig follows the amazing, porktastic adventures of Gary Yorkshire – an entirely normal piglet whose world is turned upside down when he's bitten by his friend, Brooklyn the bat, and develops the power of flight! And what can Gary do with this newfound talent but go ham – and become a superhero? Alternating between Batpig's origin story and a furious and hilarious battle with his nemesis, Repto-Man, this is a brilliantly funny and skilfully rendered commercial young graphic novel series, with each book containing two separate stories.

Customer reviews


'With hilarious heroics, epic excitement and pig-tastic powers, BATPIG is a gloriously silly adventure. Filled with laugh-out-loud moments and amazingly exciting stories, Batpig doesn't stop for a second. You'll want to read and re-read these books over and over again. I love Batpig, it's OINKING BRILLIANT!' Jamie Smart

'Very funny and very silly. Forget Dog Man – Batpig will be bringing home the bacon from now on!' Gary Northfield

'Over-the-top fun, filled with fast pacing, abundant silliness, and a well-developed plot and characters... This is an absolute must-read for fans of Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man series. Readers will go hog wild for this lovable hero.'

'Irreverent, animal-based humor... Harrell’s story will delight fans of Dog Man and InvestiGators.'

'Yes this might all seem totally silly but there are themes of the importance of maintaining your own identity, friendship and the issues of three-way camaraderie; and all three characters are relatable to human readers. If you know readers who enjoy graphic novels such as The Investigators, they’ll love this, as will all those who prefer stories with the emphasis on the visual.' Red Reading Hub

'Pacy, punchy and punny, it is a book that is unashamedly raucous fun. […] This is a book that absolutely should not be ignored by teachers as it is a perfect text to engage reluctant readers into the joy of reading.' Just Imagine

'This is such a brilliant book that had me laughing so much when reading it!' The Strawberry Post
