In Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey by Alex Milway, the main character, Pigsticks, a pig who wants to be famous like his ancestors; wants to go to the ends of the earth. Pigsticks needs an assistant, but there are no suitable animals. Then he meets Harold, a not-so-cheery or adventurous hamster, and they go off on a journey. They go through the jungle, the desert, and over a mountain. Will their journey make them friends?
Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey could be a little bit more exciting. There wasn't enough action for me. I think that all or at least one of the characters should tell their feelings. I do not like that the author brought up characters but did not tell much about them in the beginning of the story when Pigsticks was interviewing assistants. The book has many pages without much writing because of the many illustrations. I do not suggest this book for 7 year-old and older readers.
