Dick King-Smith is one of the world's favourite children's book authors.

His other titles for Walker include the bestselling Sophie series and the sequel to Lady Lollipop, Clever Lollipop. Jill Barton was Highly Commended for the 1993 Kate Greenaway Medal for The Pig in the Pond. Her many other titles include The Happy Hedgehog Band, Little Mo, What Baby Wants, The Rattletrap Car and four Baby Duck stories.From School Library Journal:
Gr 2-4-Spoiled Princess Penelope's parents give her the pig she demands as a present for her eighth birthday. And, luckily enough for the child and her royal but ineffective parents, the endearing animal is accompanied by young Johnny Skinner, an amiable pig-keeper determined to teach the family something about manners and good sense. King-Smith's abundant affection for pigs and sure hand with dialogue keep the story buoyant, and the happy ending is never in doubt. Lollipop adapts to palace life quite quickly, thanks to Johnny's good training, and she even has a flap in the palace door so that she can get out as necessity dictates. Barton's pencil illustrations are charming and recall Ernest H. Shepard's various royal personages in A. A. Milne's Now We Are Six. The king's befuddled face and Penelope's stormy looks are delightful. Lollipop is shown with a sweetly confident expression as she goes about her pig activities, including happily depositing a bit of fertilizer on the queen's roses. The cover is inviting, and the book is handsomely designed with an open and readable typeface. An appealing read-aloud for younger children and a satisfying chapter book for those a little older.
