* Entertaining, informative, and packed with unusual facts * Illustrated in color throughout Pig, porker, hog, swine--however you refer to him, there is no doubt that the chubby quadruped with the curly tail and the big oink is regarded with enormous affection. The author explores the influence of the pig's characteristics and his quirky nature on our language, literature, and general outlook on life. Piggy appearances in the media, both ancient and modern, are celebrated with a wide array of quotations from such diverse sources as Horace, Shakespeare, Bunyan, and Kipling, not to mention Noel Coward, Beatrix Potter, and The Goon Show. Higgledy-Piggledy offers us a marvelous selection of sayings and proverbs concerning all things porcine. Entertaining, informative, packed with unusual facts, and meticulously researched, Richard Lutwyche's book at last does proper justice to the rich heritage of the pig. Higgledy-Piggledy will amuse and captivate all those who love these endearing and intelligent farmyard inhabitants.
