Author Bio

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals.  After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.  Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites.  He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does.  Among his well-loved books is Babe, The Gallant Pig , which was recently made into a major motion picture, and was nominated for an Academy Award.  

Dick currently lives with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.  

Editorial Reviews

"An animal fantasy which will inevitably be compared to Charlotte's Web...Combines a robust pleasue in the smell and feel of rural surroundings with a humorous affection for all living creatures...a splendid book." The Horn Book, starred review
