PEARLY AND PIG AND THE GREAT HAIRY BEAST


Pearly Woe is a worrier. She worries about anything and everything. Mostly, she worries that her worries will mean she will never become a member of the top-secret group of stealth adventurers – The Adventurologists’ Guild – despite her very special talent of being able to speak animal languages.
But with her parents missing, Pig pig-napped, and Pearly a stowaway on an icebreaker heading for Antarctica …
Pearly’s worries just got REAL.

REVIEWS

“… a rollicking adventure with plenty of twists to keep readers turning the pages …” Momo Celebrating Time to Read

“…There are some quirky fantastical elements here (talking to animals is an awesome ability!), but the main theme of overcoming self-doubt and persevering no matter the odds will be relatable and inspiring for kids…” Borgprincess

“… a junior fiction gem … a fast-paced adventure that introduces a smart and feisty young heroine. You’re in good hands with author Sue Whiting- the pace is perfect, the characters fun and quirky and the reader is encouraged to think about how we face our fears  …” Paul’s Book Trail
