Synopsis

Clever Lollipop by Dick King-smith

This is a fresh young fiction look for Dick King-Smith's timeless classics, Lady Lollipop and Clever Lollipop. Lady Lollipop is no ordinary pig. She lives in the royal palace with Princess Penelope and the King and Queen - and she's very clever. She's very good at solving other people's problems too. But when she needs a little magical help herself, it's time to call in the amazing Collie Cob, the Conjuror! Clever Lollipop and Lady 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 humorous and tremendously engaging story from the master of animal fantasy.' Financial Times

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.
