Meet Boris! He lives with his mom and dad in Hogg Bay. Their home is a van that once traveled all over the world. Then one morning, Boris feels a jolt. Could it be? Is the van really moving? Is Boris on an adventure at last?
But when Boris ends up on a trip to a wildlife refuge instead of the jungle safari he'd imagined, he ends up having an adventure he'll never forget. Because for this little warthog, life never quite turns out as he plans.
About the Author
Andrew Joyner is an Australian illustrator and cartoonist. The first picture book that he illustrated, "The Terrible Plop", was published in 2009. Soon after Andrew created his own book series based on Boris, an adventurous warthog. In addition to his children's book projects, he also illustrates regularly for newspapers and magazines. Andrew lives in Strathalbyn, South Australia, with his family and nineteen pets.
"Joyner moves effortlessly between small written sections and big illustrations with comic style text. Really gorgeous...But above all, they're just ridiculously fun boy books."
