Book Review | Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home by Rob Harrell

Sponsored content

Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home is the third book in a brilliantly funny young graphic novel series, with two separate stories in each book.

Gary Yorkshire and his friends, Carl the fish and Brooklyn the bat, are facing what might be their piggest mission yet: magical sharks – and summer camp! First, there’s the sudden appearance of Sharkraham Lincoln (half shark! half president!), who sets off a major test cheating scandal. And then, at the worryingly named Camp Whomp-a-Pig, Gary’s hoping to finally get a break from superhero-ing, but a grumpy lake monster isn’t letting this sleeping pig lie.

Will Batpig ever catch a break to just relax and enjoy a tasty sandwich, and not have to save the world?

Brilliantly written and skilfully rendered by Rob Harrell, Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home is ideal reading for ages 7+.

Review from Fin, age 11

Hi, I’m Fin and I am doing a book review on Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home for Kidspot NZ. This book was very entertaining to read. I loved the characters and the humour.

The book is about a pig called Gary and his friends Brook the bat and Carl the cod. I really liked the names the author gave the characters in this book especially.

The book is broken into 2 miniature stories and it was really easy to read because it is a graphic novel. The pictures made the story come to life in my head and I have found myself reading it over and over again as I enjoyed it so much.

Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home

I would recommend kids aged about 5 upwards should read Batpig, especially kids that enjoy funny stories and animal characters. I am giving this book a 4.5 star rating.

Review from Kyle, age 8

My name is Kyle and I am 8 years old, I am doing a book review for Kidspot NZ on the book Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home by Rob Harrell.

This book is really cool! It has a comic vibe but in a book style. This has 2 stories in the book. 1st story is about Batpig being lazy with studying for a test and how he used a bit of magic and then all these wierd things started happening! 2nd story was Batpig went with his friends on camp and his identity got discovered, and how they went about to get it back to a secret!

Batpig: Go Pig or Go Home

I loved how the book is like a comic, I love the colours of the book. It is so funny and silly, it really makes you feel you reading something silly you and your friends would be doing. I liked how they dealt with Batpig feeling like he was all alone and left out with no friends, I sometimes feel like that. I also wish I had magic when I feel lazy to study!

My favourite characters where Gary, I relate to him, and Carl … he is funny!!!

I give this book 5 out of 5, it really makes you want to read it again and again. It has funny fun adventures that you really see yourself and friends doing 🙂
