The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary Of Pig by Emer Stamp (Scholastic, £8.99)

“Me, I is Pig” introduces our diarist, and while he may be no Samuel Pepys, what he lacks linguistically he more than makes up for in cheeky humour and cool, graphic visuals. After discovering a pen while snuffling for slops, Pig happily sets about detailing his life on the farm for your child’s reading pleasure, and guess what? Pig loves life on the farm. Mostly because his master seems intent on fattening him up with delicious all-you-can-eat slops. Now, readers with even a fleeting knowledge of farmyard life may spot the danger signs here, but it takes a series of silly plot swerves involving chickens, a space race and a sweet friendship with a Duck for Pig to see the light. Witty, pacy and perfectly pitched for early readers – your child won’t have seen anything like this before.
