I love its quirky characters and the underlying message of difference and acceptance. Charlesworth Oinkington is a hog who prefers sipping tea to playing in the mud with the other hogs. He sets out on a journey to find more refined friends but soon learns that the mud is not always cleaner on the other side. The illustrations and fun characters make this an engaging and fun read for all ages. See if your students can spot any of the characters from Sean’s earlier books on the muddy pages. - Louise Moore

Warthogs LOVE to play in mud. But not Charlie… Charlesworth Oinkington is a sophisticated gentle-hog who would rather sip tea, go bird watching and read poetry. Happy as a Hog out of Mud celebrates difference and acceptance via lighthearted humour and cannonballs! Readers will enjoy exploring a range of different animals, engage with the hilarious and quirky illustrations and marvel at the memorable characters.
