Kirkus Reviews

This zippier alternative to Gail Gibbons's Pigs (1999) surrounds similarly simple, brightly colored cartoon portraits of side-posing porkers with labels, maps, snippets of fact ("Denmark has more pigs than people!"), and exclamation points. Older never quite gets around to explaining the common fate of all those farm pigs, but he does present a general view of their habits and predilections (i.e., food, mud, having their backs scratched), points out physical differences between common breeds, provides a bit of ig-pay atin-lay actice-pray, and closes with both a tally of renowned pigs and a helpful Web site. Another decidedly un-boaring look at livestock from the creators of COW.

Publishers Weekly

The team behind COW and Ice Cream porks out with PIG. Cartoonish panel and full-page illustrations of assorted swine from across the globe and a multitude of facts snappily delivered provide enough fun to keep readers in hog heaven. Just remember, "If you want to impress a farmer, don't say 'When will your sow have babies?' Say, 'When will your sow farrow?'"
