Dick King-Smith delights readers again with an enchanting tale of an intelligent pig, her royal family, and one very special teacher.

Princess Penelope doesn’t know how to read, and she’s not certain she wants to learn how. But the new royal tutor, Collie Cob the Conjurer - with his long white beard, brimless top hat, and strange, multicolored clothing - is no ordinary teacher. Whether working with a person (like Penelope and her friend Johnny) or a pig (like Penelope’s pet, Lollipop), Collie Cob can teach anyone just about anything, almost as if by magic. Combining short, breezy chapters and abundant black-and-white illustrations, here is a winning pig tale that is sure to appeal to both early readers and the read-aloud crowd.
