Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, The Invisible Dog, The Queen's Nose and The Crowstarver. At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year. In 2009 he was made OBE for services to children's literature. Dick King-Smith died in 2011 at the age of eighty-eight.From AudioFile:
Pregnant in a pig-sty, an expectant mouse gives way to prenatal cravings and gorges on "Porker Pills." The prodigious result is another free-wheeling adventure by Dick King-Smith, brought hilariously to life by Nigel Anthony's droll-but-dramatic reading. From the sensibly sharp-tongued syllables of Madeline (the mother), to the loquacious Oxford-educated pronouncements of Marcus Aurelius (the father), to the cries of the insatiable off-spring, Nigel's command of personality and nuance is flawless. As the plot builds to its dramatic climax (Magnus meets a car) and sentimental denouement( bacon rinds all around), Nigel's pacing is perfect. A winning combination of print and performance. K.T.B.
