This Little Pig Came Home With Me
If you are considering adding a mini pig to your family, or just plain curious about these adorable little pigs I suggest reading this book, Mini Pigs / Teacup Pigs All You Need To Know: The Essential Guide by Harriet Fields. As well as dispelling many mistruths and false stereotypical myths that our culture has adopted over the years this comprehensive guide answered a lot of questions for me. The most prominent for me is the pigs mislabeling – mini, teacup, micro, miniature, and pocket pigs. They are not specific breeds of pigs that are smaller than the large pigs used in farming. Also, the notion that micro pigs are tiny. Yes, micro pigs are smaller than pigs usually kept on farms but this does not mean that they are TINY. I am glad that I read this informative book.
I have been enlightened in all areas of the little pig world. Once again I recommend this well written and comprehensive guidebook to all those considering adding a cute little addition to their family herd. This book can remove all the uncertainties and surprises that come with this fifteen-year companion. As for the book itself, I really like the cover art illustration and highly informative content. Although, I must mention this book is plagued with typographical errors. Not misspellings but the interjection of wrong words. Therefore, I feel that proofing and editing work are poor. Don’t get me wrong this book is a great wealth of information and is worthy of reading.
