Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Here, in the brisk prose we have come to expect from King-Smith, is a whole barnyard world-the Squire, whose back gets scratched by the Pigman; the Pigman, whose club is ever at the ready for the little dog; the little dog, surrounded by a society of squealing, squalling sows; the little dog with the funny feet, who is the real hero of this tale. A rollicking story that will leave readers convinced that pigs might indeed fly. And "Dratyer! Dangyer! and Blastyer!" if yer don't believe it.
