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").
"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)"
