7819 dick king smith 206753

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children’s books. Dick’s love of animals and farmyard life shines through in his stories. His gentle, accessible stories are ideal for young readers, blending humour and fantasy with useful lessons about life and the world.

Among his best-loved books is Babe, The Sheep Pig, which became a major film and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Dick died in January 2011, aged 88.
