Blog Tour: The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig by Emer Stamp

We are really excited to be today’s host for on the blog tour for The Unbelievable Top Secret Diary of Pig. Earlier this month, Wendy attended the launch event for the book at Jimmy’s Farm. Here is Wendy’s report on the event.

This is Emer’s first book and we were lucky enough to attend the book launch at Jimmy’s Farm.

At the launch we made a pig face out of straw – there was lots of straw flying everywhere and the ladies from Scholastics did very well in controlling the children!! As they were all having great fun running round with handfuls of straw.

We all then got to sit on straw bales in a barn as we had a talk from Emer about how she got her inspiration for the book and of course a book reading from her. The children didn’t want her to stop reading as it is a really funny book.


Emer also showed us how to draw the characters of pig and the evil chickens from the book. They were really simple but effective and she explained them perfectly for children and all the children managed to do great drawings. As you can see from the above photo we also got to decorate and eat pig shaped biscuits.
