Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals

Dick 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. He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals.

Ronald Gordon King-Smith OBE, Ho. Ed (27 March 1922 – 4 January 2011), was a prolific English writer of children's books, primarily using the pen name Dick King-Smith.

Harry's Mad was a children's television programme that was shown on CITV in the United Kingdom between 4 January 1993 and 11 March 1996. It is based upon a book written by Dick King-Smith. The show begins when Harry Holdsworth (Gareth Parrington) inherits his American great-uncle George's macaw named Madison.

Crowstarving was the ideal job for Spider - he was on his own - yet never alone, for all around him were animals of one sort or another. Discovered as a foundling in a lambing pen, Spider Sparrow grows up surrounded by animals. From sheep and horses to wild otters and foxes, Spider loves them all, even the crows must scare away the newly sown wheat. Farmer Hoggett thinks the piglet he wins at the fair is just one to be fattened up for the freezer until his old sheepdog, Fly, takes Babe under her wing and starts to train him to be a sheepdog too.

Harry's Mad. Dick King-Smith served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War, and afterwards spent twenty years as a farmer in Gloucestershire, the county of his birth. Many of his stories are inspired by his farming experiences. He wrote a great number of children's books, including The Sheep-Pig (winner of the Guardian Award and filmed as Babe), Harry's Mad, The Hodgeheg, Martin's Mice, The Invisible Dog, The Queen's Nose and The Crowstarver. At the British Book Awards in 1991 he was voted Children's Author of the Year.

Fun story, told from King-Smith's delightful imagination. The boy Harry inherits an African grey parrot named Madison from his great-uncle and discovers that the clever bird can not only talk but also carry on conversations, help with homework, play games, offer opinions, and get the dog to obey him. So when Madison (Mad) is stolen, the whole family is bereft. Leave it to the parrot to save himself - with a little help from Harry, of course - and follow up with a surprise ending.

Nobody expects King-Smith's animals to be completely animal (after all, Babe could herd sheep!) but I wish he had done a bit more research before writing about a parrot. He lost me when he described the bird as having a "bare, scaly face." A parrot's face is covered with tiny, soft feathers over smooth skin. And parrots cannot live on "plain parrot seed." Obviously he's never been close to a real parrot.

Other than that, it's an enjoyable story that will tickle young readers.

I read this book to my two boys who were 10 and 12 at the time and they loved it. I admit I also liked it a lot. Reading the book out loud and saying the words phonetically (as spelled) in the dialogue can be very funny and engaging for your children. My sister loaned me this book, but I wanted my own copy so I bought it for myself. I can't imagine you will be disappointed with this book. I think it is the best of Dick King-Smith's books - even better than Babe (The Sheep-Pig) or The Water Horse.

Great book.

Lovely reading of a very funny book.
This is different than some of the other books and very entertaining. It is very clever, as the title already shows!
