That'll Do.

In sadder children's literature news this morning, I have just learned that Dick King-Smith died last week at the age of 88. He is probably best known here for having written The Sheep Pig, which was later published in America as Babe: The Gallant Pig and was made into the hit film Babe. In all, he wrote over one hundred books which have been translated into twelve languages and continue to delight children (and adults) the world over.
