Gail Gibbons
Pigs are appealing animals — particularly when the reader learns that they’re not the smelly, unkempt creatures they’re so often portrayed as. In fact, they are quite intelligent and are composed of different breeds with many different uses. Gibbons presents a full picture of pigs, treating them with much deserved respect.

Gibbons's 100th book is devoted to presenting swine in a positive light; she quickly demystifies the stereotypes that cast pigs as smelly, dirty, greedy, and dull. Descended and domesticated from the wild boar, pigs come in hundreds of varieties, colors, shapes, and sizes; in simple language, the book outlines their characteristics, breeds, intelligence, communication, habits, and uses. Copyright 1999, Softcover, 30 pages.
