About the Author
Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books that have received critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Among his well-loved novels are Babe: The Gallant Pig, Harry's Mad, Martin's Mice, Ace: The Very Important Pig, The Robber Boy, The Invisible Dog, Three Terrible Trins, Harriet's Hare, The Stray, A Mouse Called Wolf, and Mr. Ape. Mr. King-Smith passed in away in 2011, but his stories live on.
"A sunny story... which succeeds because of its determined main character, its gentle wit, and its positive message." -- Booklist "An appealing beginning-chapter book for young readers... and a surefire read-aloud." -- School Library Journal
