LoveReading View on Lady Lollipop

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.

Lady Lollipop Synopsis

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' ).

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."
