Cunningham and Other Pigs I Have Known Illustrated by Jim Powell

This collection of short stories and vignettes includes more than 30 tales about pigs—from Frank, the North Dakota hog who could play the piano, to Doodle Bug, Emory’s FFA pig who ran away from home.

Whether Emory is taking his pet pig, Cunningham, to an art class in nearby Helen or for a romp around our nation’s Capital, you never know what’s going to happen next.

  • “As a gold medal winner in livestock judging at the National Future Farmers of America competition, I know a good pig when I see one. And I know what it takes to exhibit a Grand Champion. Without a doubt, I would award the Blue Ribbon to Cunningham! I thought this book sizzled like frying bacon, even though it’s obvious the author is a ham.”—Nathan Deal, 82nd Governor of Georgia
  • “When two former Star Greenhands and fellow FFA state officers put their creative heads together, you never know what will happen. In this case, it turns out to be a funny, funny book about pigs. Way to go, guys!”—Gary Black, Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture and former state FFA president
  • “As a chicken man, I didn’t know pigs could be so funny. This is a fantastic collection of humorous stories deeply rooted in an appreciation for agriculture and the rural way of life.”—Mike Giles, Georgia Poultry Federation President and recipient of the Honorary American FFA Degree
