Description

Noah is pretty happy at school - he's in a friendly class, he's got a best mate, Jack, and he's one of the youngest to be picked for the school football team. Then a broken leg keeps him off school for several weeks and on his return there's been a mysterious change of atmosphere. A new boy, Basil, has joined the class and everyone is fascinated by him. The only person who seems to be immune to Basil's charms is class-joke, Bertie, known as Pigface. Try as he might, Noah just can't slip back into his normal place - it seems to have been usurped by Basil. His only choice of partner in class, at lunch, in Games and at break is Pigface. Forced to sample life as an outsider, Noah has a choice - make a desperate effort to get back into the 'inner circle' or get to see life from Pigface's alternative viewpoint.show more

Back cover copy

Pigface had never been anything other than Pigface. It was simply the perfect name for him. Noah and his friends have always called the quiet, podgy boy in their class 'Pigface'. He is round and pink, and he lives on a pig farm, so he must know it's a joke, mustn't he? At any rate, Noah is sure he's never heard Pigface complain. Then a new boy joins the class and Noah begins to wonder if nick-names are quite so funny after all... A thought-provoking story about bullying at school.show more
