Author Info
Dick King-Smith
A former farmer and teacher, author Dick King-Smith writes books for children--many of which feature farm and domestic animals. King-Smith did not begin writing for children until he started working as a teacher--a career he began when he was 53 years old. His first book, THE FOX-BUSTERS, was published in 1978. King-Smith is also well known for his book BABE: THE GALLANT PIG which tells of the adventures of a sheep-hearding pig and which was made into the 1995 feature film BABE. King-Smith has also served as the host and writer for the English children's television programs "Tumbledown Farm" and "Rub-A-Dub-Tub." In addition to his short novels for children, King-Smith also writes nonfiction books and picture books for children.
From the Publisher
Annotation A spoiled princess insists on an unusual gift for her eighth birthday--a pig. Reluctantly, her parents give in to her request and summon all the pigs in the kingdom so that their princess can select the very best, most attractive pig. However, the princess selects a rather ugly pig whom she names Lollipop. Will Lollipop be a good addition to the palace? Line illustrations accompany the text.

Editors Note 2 "The author of BABE, THE GALLANT PIG offers another winner with this tale of a bright pig and her canny young keeper 'training' a spoiled princess. . . . Move over, Wilbur."? KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review)Lollipop is no ordinary pig. According to her young trainer, Johnny Skinner, she's the smartest pig in the entire kingdom. When people stare into Lollipop's bright, intelligent eyes, it somehow changes them for the better. But can Lollipop win over the spoiled Princess Penelope - and her not-so-pig-friendly parents, the King and Queen? With humorous black-and-white illustrations by Jill Barton, Dick King-Smith's tale about a special pig - and some memorable humans, too - will delight his legions of loyal fans!
Editors Note 3 A quick-witted swineherd and a pig named Lollipop are royally rewarded after they reform a spoiled princess.
