Meet Piggles The Flying Pig

Nice to meet you. I’m Piggles. Now, you might have heard that pigs can’t fly, but let me tell you that just isn’t true. I can fly a helicopter, a glider, an aeroplane... even a space shuttle! Yes, I was the First Pig in Space. That was quite a weekend, I can tell you!

The thing is, a pig might not be able to fly in real life, but I was born in a child’s imagination. And, as everyone knows, in a child’s imagination, anything can happen... including a piggy pilot!

Harrison dreamed me up, and his mum and her friends made me the flight instructor that I am today. But I’m not going to tell you any more about my fine aviation career. If you want to know that, you will have to read the books, won’t you!

Meet my creator

In September 2017, Harrison Holmes (aged 6, although we are supposed to tell you he’s 7 now) went to visit his mum at work for the afternoon. Harrison is lucky: his mum is BookLife Publishing’s Senior Editor and Author Kirsty Holmes, and it’s her job to think of new ideas for awesome books.

At least he knew his day wouldn’t be boring.

Harrison spent a brilliant day at BookLife: he carried out checks in the warehouse, viewed a demonstration of the bendy forklift, made some important phone calls, and checked that all the dinosaurs in our new series were the correct species (they were). Then he sat at his mum’s desk to work on some product development, before pitching several ideas to CEO Nick Ison.

When Kirsty got to work the next day, one idea on Harrison’s list really stood out:
“What if pigs could fly aeroplanes, and teach me all about it?”
And so, a new series was born…
