Piggy Trotters had a long career in the corporate world at senior levels. He holds six degrees (yes 6) ranging from finance and business administration to counter-terrorism and international security. Piggy is a long time reader of Australian history, military history, terrorism and counter-terrorism. As part of his Masters degree in counter-terrorism at Macquarie University, Piggy wrote an extensive paper on the financing of terrorism. Now retired, the child within Piggy is no longer restrained and has been unleashed with a vengeance. The concept of the book "Thir Franthith Thnake (an unauthorithed biography)" commenced with an idea from Piggy's brother, Porky Trotters, some decades ago. That early idea has been expanded upon in more recent times by Piggy to create this complete story. If nothing else, it represents many hours of fun in putting it together and engaging others to participate in the process. Three cheers for Inma, the illustrator! The story follows the hilarious adventures of our hero, who overcomes childhood adversity to develop into a mature and confident young adult, and ultimately becomes a hero to all. Along the way he meets a new mate, Ralph, who shares the adventures. The book features a puzzle, the Pig's puzzle, which challenges readers to solve the mystery. It also features the curious "visions" our hero has along the way, the meaning of which is only revealed in the climax to the story. It is a story of overcoming adversity, good triumphs over evil, and there is even an ugly duckling story embedded within it, and it's very funny. You should read it.
