       Additional Information  
      "Daddy says your brother, Hawkins, is going to be bigger and maybe I should choose him for my project, but I like you, Hiram. You're cuter."

    I didn't know what she meant, but I liked the idea of her choosing me. The soft hands rubbed my sides and stroked my back. Then they moved to sratch behind my ear and I knew why Mother grunted with satisfaction whenever Girl scratched her in such a way. It felt just wonderful. I wanted to curl up against Girl's strange smelling softness and fall fast asleep while enjoying the luxury of being caressed. from This Little Pig

    From that time on Hiram and his brother Hawkins spent their growing up times vying for first place in the pig family. Hawkins was bigger so Hiram felt that he had to be better. Both mischievous pigs found that their disobedience brought them more trouble than they could handle.

    Hiram was chosen for the "project." But both pigs learned how important it was to be the best pig that they could be.
