The Pig Who Saved the World is the sequel to The Pig Scrolls, both of which have been written by Paul Shipton. It is set in Ancient Greece and makes references to Greek mythology concerning their gods and heroes. It was first published in 2006.

The main character Gryllus, a talking pig, has just finished saving the world from utter chaos when, he decides he wants to become human once more. In order to do this, Gryllus has to set out to find Circe, the witch who turned him into a pig in the first place, and ask her to change him back. Sibyl, the ex-priestess, and Homer, the soon to be an epic poet, come along for the ride.

The Pig Who Saved the World won the Nestlé Bronze Award in 2006.
