Wallow in fascinating facts about the smartest of all farm animals-- the pig.
From ancient wild boars to modern breeds, pigs are intriguing-- and often misunderstood. They may roll in mud when it's very hot out, but prefer to be clean and tidy. And most pigs don't "eat like pigs."
With clear, simple text and bright, well-labeled watercolors, Gail Gibbons explores the truth about pigs. Digging up truffles, competing in county fairs, grunting and squealing to communicate-- these flat-snouted farm animals are complex and surprisingly talented.
Important vocabulary, information about domestic and wild breeds, and a page of fun pig facts are included. Ideal for young readers or classroom use, Pigs has everything you need to know-- from snout to curly tail.---from the publisher
