Product description

Review

'An engaging book about porcine brilliance' The Daily Express

For Pig in the Middle/Oink: My Life with Mini-pigs:

‘Move over Marley, a pair of cute mini-pigs are about to take over the world.’ New York Post

‘This merry memoir of family growing pains and too many pets has so many laugh-out-loud sequences it's embarrassing to read in public… the most good-hearted, hilarious memoir in years.’ Shelf Awareness

‘What a fabulous, funny read! I enjoyed every page. Highly recommended for anyone with a pet, a partner, a family, a sense of humour…or even a minipig.’ Sophie Kinsella

‘Funny, frank and charming.’ Lisa Jewell

‘Definitely my favourite pigs since Babe… funny and completely charming.’ Jenny Colgan

‘Written with wry humour and accompanied by numerous photographs, ink is a moving salute to love, family and commitment.’ Richmond Times-Dispatch

‘Be careful where you read this book because it is laugh-out-loud funny… Whyman has a flair for self-deprecating asides and for making the "ordinary" sparkling. It's compelling, bristles with irony and is sure to delight animal lovers.’ Daily Telegraph (Sydney)

‘A darling book – very funny and definitely for animal lovers.’ ABC

About the Author

Matt Whyman had no intention of becoming a pig expert. When his wife set down the cat basket and welcomed minipigs Butch and Roxi into their family home, he barely registered their presence. Several years later, with the garden all but gone, Matt watched their two twenty-five stone hogzillas leave in a horsebox for a new life turning the soil on an organic sheep farm. In that time he’d learned the truth about minipigs (there is no such thing), got to grips with their upkeep and fallen in love with an animal brimming with more energy, intelligence, playfulness, sociability, spirit and soul than he ever could’ve imagined.

Matt Whyman is also the author of several novels and two bestselling comic memoirs, OINK: MY LIFE WITH MINIPIGS and WALKING WITH SAUSAGE DOGS. He is married with four children and lives in West Sussex.
