New recording of The Boy Who Kicked Pigs available as a download 

Tom has recently made a new recording of his book, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, for Silksoundbooks and it is available as a download here. 

It is also possible to buy a voucher here and have it emailed to someone as a gift.

Tom's first book was his autobiography, Who on Earth is Tom Baker, published in 1997 by Harper Collins, which revealed his love of telling a good story, his taste for black comedy and his desire to make people laugh.

In 1999, he went on to write The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, published by Faber and Faber. It is a short, gruesome, but hilariously funny story about the fate of a boy with a habit of kicking pigs who causes havoc in the community around him.

The book was illustrated by David Roberts whose black ink sketches reflect the bizarre world of Robert Caligari, the boy antihero of the story. Some of these illustrations feature in the download.

To date, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs is Tom’s only published work apart from his autobiography. It remains in print and was published in a number of different forms – from presentation hardback to paperback – and has been published in 8 other languages – including Chinese.
