Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of Extraordinary Chickens comes the latest extraordinary animal--the pig. One of the most intelligent animals on earth, the pig is a fascinating creature with an abundance of personality. Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage captures these lively and energetic animals as they play and forage on the farm, prance around in the show ring, or strut across a studio backdrop. 

Extraordinary Pigs displays an enormous variety of swine, 38 in total, including tiny Kunekunes, wrinkled Meishans, spotted Gloucester Old Spots, curly-coated Mangalitzas, wild boars, and some miniatures, which are highly prized as pets. Breeds from around the world are featured here--from the United States, England, Wales, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, New Zealand, China, Vietnam, Africa, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

Book News Annotation:
