The Lovereading4Kids comment

Award-winning author Dick King-Smith is best known for 'Babe', the story of the Sheep-Pig. A lover of all animals and a master teller of stories about them, Dick King-Smith was particularly keen on pigs. Lollipop is a pig with a difference. And it is lucky that she is as Lollipop becomes the pet pig of the very, very spoilt Princess Penelope. Can Lollipop, who seems to have some very special powers when people look into her eyes, really change the brattish Princess? It is a delightful fairy story with just a touch of magic.

Synopsis

Lady Lollipop by Dick King-Smith

This is a fresh young fiction look for Dick King-Smith's timeless classics, Lady Lollipop and Clever Lollipop. Lollipop is no ordinary pig. According to her young owner Johnny Skinner, she's the cleverest pig in the whole kingdom. When people stare into Lollipop's bright, intelligent eyes, it seems to change them for the better. But will Lollipop win over spoilt Princess Penelope - and the King and Queen? Lady Lollipop and Clever Lollipop make a classic pair from the much-loved Dick King-Smith, the man who brought pigs to fame with The Sheep-Pig (filmed as 'Babe' ).

Reviews

'This is an author who is certainly due an award for his PR work on behalf of pigs. This story will delight King-Smith's younger readers.' Junior Education

'Large print and...pictures to encourage newly confident readers onto slightly longer novels.' - Primary Times

'A delightful fairy tale... Airy, witty illustrations.' - The Guardian

'A terrific book... King-Smith's masterful storytelling is matched by Barton's superb illustrations.' - Books for Keeps

About the Author

Dick King-Smith

Dick King-Smith was born in 1922 and brought up in Gloucestershire.

Dick served with the Grenadier Guards during World War II and was mentioned in dispatches. He then spent twenty years working as a farmer and a short period teaching in a primary school before becoming a full-time writer.

Dick wrote over seventy stories, many of which have animal characters for the simple reason that, "I like them, I've always kept a lot of pets, and because it's fun putting words in their mouths." His farming years were the inspiration for many of his books, and pigs have featured in several of them because they are his favourite animal. Dick won the 1984 Guardian Fiction Award for The Sheep-Pig, which was later turned into an Oscar-winning film, 'Babe'. He died in 2011.
