HarperCollins, 1995 - Humor - 52 pages
"A pig's life is short and its experience somewhat limited. But when it comes to food our porcine friend is not so mute as one might suppose. From a madrigal by William Wobblebottom to Sir John Suckling's Encouragement to a Pigling, the literate and erudite among our grunting sophisticates pour forth their spiritual effusions and wealth of wisdom, teaching both us and young piglings alike something of what it means to be a pig."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
