Read full description of the books Martin`s Mice:Of all the King-Smith books we've read so far (and we're on a roll with those), this is by far Logan's favorite. A barn cat named Martin thinks mice are cute and doesn't want to kill them. When he sees that the farm girl keeps rabbits as pets, he decides he's going to keep a mouse. He finds one, but from the beginning, it's not as simple as Martin imagined. To begin with, Drusilla the mouse isn't that keen on the idea. Then, when he convinces her and gets her all set up in an old bathtub in a hay shed, he has to worry about getting her food and water, cleaning up after her, and protecting her from his siblings who feel that mice are definitely for eating! When Drusilla has babies, and then Martin's tough old tomcat dad appears on the scene, Martin's paws are full. I enjoy reading King-Smith aloud because he's funny and, considering talking animals figure largely in his stories, surprisingly realistic. I loved in this book that Martin has to cope with the realities of pet-keeping, right down to having to find Drusilla a mate when she wants to have babies.
Read information about the authorDick 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 lived with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.
