Publisher Comments:

Another funny, winning, and long-awaited pig tale from Dick King-Smith!

Lollipop is no ordinary pig. According to her young trainer, Johnny Skinner — who also happens to specialize in good human behavior — shes the smartest pig in the entire kingdom. When people stare into Lollipops bright, intelligent eyes, it somehow changes them for the better. But can Lollipop win over the spoiled Princess Penelope — and her not-so-pig-friendly parents, the King and Queen?

With humorous black-and-white interior illustrations by Jill Barton, Dick King-Smiths tale about a special pig — and some memorable humans, too — will delight his legions of loyal fans!

About the Author

Dick King-Smith says, "Each time I sit down to write an animal story, I

say to myself, ‘What sort of animal? and I answer, ‘Pig! Then I say, ‘No,

no, youve just done a pig story. So I have to wait. And I have waited.

And then along came LADY LOLLIPOP!"

Jill Barton left school at the age of sixteen and did all sorts of odd jobs

until she married, had children, and stopped working outside the home.

She attended art school and graduated at the age of forty-eight

with a degree in illustration. Jill Barton has illustrated numerous award-winning books for children, such as WHAT BABY WANTS by Phyllis Root, and the much-beloved In the RAIN WITH BABY DUCK; YOU'RE THE BOSS, BABY DUCK!; OFF TO SCHOOL, BABY DUCK!; and BABY DUCK AND THE BAD EYEGLASSES, all written by Amy Hest.
