About the Author:

Gail Gibbons "has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator," according to The Washington Post. Winner of the 2010 Regina Medal, she has written and illustrated more than fifty books for Holiday House. She lives in Corinth, Vermont.

From Kirkus Reviews:

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. The author distinguishes the various termshog, swine, gilt, sow, boarwhile also explaining the act of wallowing in mud. The bulk of the text is characteristically factual, but Gibbons allows herself an opinion or two: ``They are cute and lovable with their curly tails, their flat pink snouts and their noisy squeals and grunts.'' Pen-and-watercolor drawings show sprightly pigs and a plethora of pink-cheeked children in tranquil farm scenes. (Picture book/nonfiction. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
