Starting with an endearing list of 'piggy slang', the first few pages of Higgledy Piggledy promises to raise a smile with fun phrases such as 'bacon tree', 'excuse my pig, he's a friend' and 'Piggies'. Written by Richard Lutwyche, this guide to pigs and sayings associated with them is a light-hearted and humorous read.
From 'swine sayings' to 'inn signs' – which features public houses paying homage to the pig – the book has eye-catching imagery of beloved pigs highlighting their use through history. Babe: Pig in the City, a reference to a film about a pig, and Pigface, an industrial rock superband formed in 1990, all bring the pig into the foreground.
With the intention of exploring the characteristics of pigs and their quirky nature, this book discusses all thing swine, from quotations and sayings to proverbs, making it an easy and entertaining read for all pig enthusiasts.
