Dick King-Smith, the author of Sheep-Pig, died in his sleep Tuesday. Sheep-Pig is best know for its large screen debut, Sheep-Pig, and the sequel, Sheep-Pig 2: Sheep-Pig in the City. The author of over 100 children's books, King-Smith will be missed by all who knew him and those that grew up on his books. Not like that other pig book with the rats and spiders that spell. Evil.
