Would-be novelists are often advised, ‘If you want to succeed, write about what you know’, and this is certainly true in the case of Dick King-Smith. The author’s most successful stories are animal stories; he draws deep on his farm experience, and his love and knowledge of animals provide his charming tales with warmth, authority and humour. King-Smith’s talent is for making animals seem human. But just as importantly, he tells a good adventure story, often with an unlikely hero who triumphs against the odds. He narrates his tales with wit and tenderness. This tenderness is further revealed in the mother-baby relationships that recur throughout his stories and are often very funny. Apart from The Sheep- Pig, among the author’s best stories are The Mouse Butcher, The Hodgeheg, Harry’s Mad, Ace, and The Cuckoo Child.
I want to meet hogget. Because he was in World War II. And he was a farmer for 20 years. And sheep-pig ‘ how could you overcome you position even though you are pig.’
