Pig has a huge brown plastic dog poo. (Not one of those long ones that go dry. This one's a curly brown, wet-looking poo, with a little black plastic fly on it.) Pig thinks the poo talks to him (he doesnt't think that really - he's not bonkers or anything). But he does miss his poo lots when he loses it - mainly beause it reminds him of his dad. PIG and the Talking Poo is one of six books in Set One of the Pig series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. The Pig reading books all feature Peter Ian Green - although everybody calls him Pig, even his teachers. The 'Pig' reading series offers friendly, fast-paced and extremely funny stories in first-person diary format, for readers who want a great story in a quick read. Pig and the Talking Poo is ideal for reluctant readers aged 7 to 12 with a reading age of 8 - 9 years.
