About the Author:

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. Later he taught at a village primary school. His first book, The Fox Busters, was published in 1978. 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, Noah's Brother, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, Ace, The Cuckoo Child and Harriet's Hare (winner of the Children's Book Award in 1995). 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 School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5?In this spin-off on the Ugly Duckling theme, a swoose (the love-child of a swan and a goose) becomes Queen Victoria's favorite pet. Although the queen may never have said "We are not amused," as she often does in this story, she certainly was a bit cranky after her husband Albert died, and here it is Fitzherbert, the swoose, who finally succeeds in making her happier. Many American children will lack the background to appreciate the temperamental monarch, her transformation, or the courtly swoose, but they will enjoy Fitzherbert's plucky individualism and King-Smith's wordplay. Some of the vocabulary and a passage involving a French chef with a thick accent may be a bit daunting for beginning or reluctant readers, but add nicely to a read-aloud. The occasional feathery pen-and-ink illustrations seem a bit anemic, but such simplicity supports without overwhelming the text. King-Smith's fans will enjoy this new offering with its charm and chuckles.?Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
