When Piggity-Wiggity complains to his dad about the length of his name, Dad explains that he and his wife felt that their large family of four boys and four girls was missing something. When Piggity-Wiggity came along, they were so delighted that they wanted to give him an extra-special, musical, heroic sort of name. Piggity-Wiggity goes to sleep well satisfied with the explanation for his extraordinary name. NZ Post Award 2009 Finalist.
Author & Illustrator Biography
Diana Neild can still remember the poem she wrote at seven years of age. It rhymed and had a bit of rhythm and from then on she was hooked. Over the years she has always written little rhyming things and poems for people’s parties and weddings but it was not until her youngest was a baby and her life was at its busiest that she started writing Piggity-Wiggity. It was something that she could create ‘hands-free’ as she just did it in her head, two lines at a time.
Philip Webb has been a freelance illustrator of children’s books for over twenty years, mostly in the area of educational readers, chapter books and New Zealand short story compilations.
A second title, Piggity-Wiggity Jiggity Jig Goes to Dad's Cafe, is due out in April 2009.
