Dick’s Birthday

Published on Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Dick King-Smith was born on the 27th March 1922. That is exactly 97 years ago today!

Although Dick died in 2011, in an almost magical way, it feels as though a small part of him lives on through the stories he wrote.

The fact that to this day, many, many children from around the world still read and enjoy Dick’s stories is very heartening to us, his family.

A big thank you to all the children, parents, teachers and carers who still take pleasure from reading Dick’s books!
