About the book
Told in fizzingly original rhymes from a rising star in the poetry world this was the first brand-new picture book on the Faber Children's list.
The tale of a hog in the fog.
This is the story of Candy Stripe Lil
and Harry the Hog who lived over the hill.
. . . and a foggy March day, roundabout three,
when Lil had invited Harry for tea.
Lil is expecting Harry the Hog for tea, but there's a swirling fog outside and Harry is nowhere to be seen.
Lil sets off to find her friend. Luckily she meets Deer, Sheep and Crow along the way, who all join in the hunt to find the hog in the fog.
A heartwarming rhyming adventure story about friendship, teamwork and teatime!
