There's a Pig up my Nose!

Paperback

Winner of the Oscar's Book Prize 2018

What if a PIG got stuck up your NOSE? How ever would you get it out?

When Natalie has to go to school with a pig stuck up her nose, her whole class gets together to find a way to get the pig out. But how will they do it?

The zany humour of Sue Hendra (of Supertato and Barry the Fish with Fingers fame) meets Babe the Pig in this funny picture book. This delightfully silly tale, brought to life by warm, comical artwork from rising star Laura Hughes, will have children giggling and oinking out loud to try to work out how to get a farmyard animal out of someone's nose.

The perfect picture book for boys and girls aged 3 years and up – or for anyone who has ever got something stuck up their nose!

"This very funny, sweet story won the hearts of the judging panel. Oink!" @oscarsbookprize

"The surprise comes right at the start, and what a wonderfully dotty premise to begin a story with, about problem solving in the classroom. Brilliantly structured too" – Julia Eccleshare

"Everything about There's a Pig Up My Nose! is entrancing, from the title onwards; it also features the best PE excuse note ever" – The Guardian

“…we really want to understand and pick out the books that kids want, as opposed to the books that adults think they should want. The winner that epitomises that more than any other is John Dougherty and Laura Hughes’ There’s A Pig Up My Nose from 2018, which is just glorious.” – James Ashton, co-founder of Oscar's Book Prize (The Bookseller)

John Dougherty was born in Larne, Northern Ireland and worked as a children's primary school teacher for several years before leaving to concentrate on his writing. He has published several books for children and has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards. His book, Zeus Sorts It Out, was one of The Times children's books of the year 2011.

Laura Hughes studied illustration at Kingston University and is the illustrator and artist behind Daddy’s Sandwich, nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2016. She has worked with several publishers including Bloomsbury, Harper Collins US and Faber & Faber. She lives in east London with her cat.
