Dick King-Smith Pack x 4

Animal magic from a master storyteller. From Max the heroic hedgehog to a piglet who dreams of herding sheep, you’ll find all creatures great and small in these glorious stories. No childhood is complete without the joy of a book or two (or many more) by Dick King-Smith, who died in 2011. Seriously: this man understood animals so well we think he secretly knew how to talk to them. (He did work as a farmer for many years, after all.) His books will charm you, surprise you and teach you all about the joy of reading. And the joy of animals!

  • Classic animal stories by a beloved master writer
  • Ideal short novels for newly independent readers
  • The Sheep-Pig was the basis for the film Babe
  • Full of charm, wisdom and life lessons to learn
