Welcome to the wonderful world of pigs! Pigology is filled with incredible pig facts told in a playful tone by Daisy Bird, with irresistibly charming illustrations by rising star Camilla Pintonato.
Pigs are full of unexpected surprises. Did you know that when a pig is happy, it will uncoil its curly tail and wag it just like a dog? Or that feral hogs can detect odors from seven miles away? Pigology delves into the history of pigs, pig breeds around the world, famous pigs, pigs in culture, and so much more, with engaging scenes from illustrator Camilla Pintonato. This lively visual encyclopedia, a follow-up to Chickenology, offers something to discover for everyone young and old: nature- and animal-loving young readers, pig enthusiasts, pig farmers, and pet pig owners alike!
Daisy Bird is a New York Times-bestselling author of adult nonfiction who lives in New York and London.
Camilla Pintonato is an author, illustrator, and graphic designer based in Venice, Italy. Her love for pigs inspired this book, but she likes drawing other animals, such as chickens, too. Her books include Full Moon, Detective Mole, and Chickenology.
"Aspirationally encyclopedic, this survey covers the pig’s evolution, domestication, characteristics, adaptations, importance as a global food source, appearances in myth, and more….An interesting, absorbing browser."
