The Third Pig Detective Agency

Hear what they’re saying about me?

This is how HarperCollins are describing my adventures…

“Harry Pigg, the only surviving brother from the Big Bad Wolf attacks, has set up business as a private detective in Grimmtown, only things aren’t going too well. Down on his luck, with bills to pay and no clients in sight the outlook is poor. But then in walks local businessman Aladdin who needs someone to help him track down an old lamp.

What follows is a case of nursery rhyme-noir. Funny, thrilling and always entertaining, Harry Pigg is an old breed of hero for a new generation. It’s as if Humphrey Bogart or James Cagney had walked into the middle of a bedtime story.

Although written for older children, Harry Pigg will appeal to grown ups as well with plenty of in-jokes for all ages.”

Me, Bogie and Cagney.  What a combo!



  1. Sounds good – when does it come out?

  4. When you are massively famous make your publisher do your books DRM free, the current software is more annoying that having your family wiped out by a wolf … sorry bad analogy.
