It gives information and stories gleaned over nearly 20 years of breeding them and observing them in the wild, and is illustrated with so many beautiful colour photos that it's almost a comic book! People not intending to get a pet pig will still love looking at all the photos! (People intending to get a piglet might change their minds after seeing the cover photo of book 4, which is the stuff of nightmares! Look inside book one's cover to see those of the other books.)
Everything about miniature pet pigs is explained, including what 'teacup', 'micro', 'nano', 'pocket', 'mini', 'potbelly' or 'potbellied' pigs are; their size; what they are like in the wild and as pets; where to find honest breeders and avoid fraudsters; how to choose and rear piglets; how to introduce them to other pets and teach toilet manners; what their needs are to be happy; causes and remedies of behavioural problems; understanding pig 'language'; communicating and training; food and health; and breeding these little pigs.
