Dick King-Smith has passed away at the age of 88. Who was he? Why am I mentioning it on a Kids page of a library blog? Because, he was the author of Babe the Gallant Pig which became a very popular movie in 1995. It was nominated for 7 Academy Awards and it is still one of the top rated movies on RottenTomatoes.com.
Checkout one of his books or Babe the next time you are at your local library. Here is a listing of all of his books and movies that the Clermont County Public Library holds.
