Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathy Greenwood
The author of Babe: The Gallant Pig has another barnyard tale for us about a lovable misfit. This time it is pitifully unattractive puppy named Smasher who quickly grows to be a gentle giant of a dog. When Smasher innocently wreaks hilarious havoc in Mrs. Buzzard's farmhouse, Farmer Buzzard takes pity on him and secretly trains him. Smasher manages to redeem himself and save the day for the Buzzards with an act of friendliness mistaken for heroism.

Meet the Author

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals.  After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.  Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites.  He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does.  Among his well-loved books is Babe, The Gallant Pig , which was recently made into a major motion picture, and was nominated for an Academy Award.  

Dick currently lives with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.

Then one night a robber tried to brake in and the dog caught him. Then the owners of the dog decided to keep him because he protected them at night.
