Is there a BABE in you?

Happy Birthday Dick King-Smith!
If you enjoyed the character of Wilbur the pig from Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White, you may also enjoy Babe The Gallant Pig by Dick King-Smith. If you haven’t read either, you’re in for a treat.

Both books have been made into movies.

Exercise: Let an animal inspire your writing. 1. Write AS the animal, like Dick King-Smith and E.B. White did. Using their point of view, write about your animal or one you’ve read about in the news. Or create one completely from fantasy. 2. Ever have a pet or meet an animal that made an impression on you? Describe this pet using active verbs and sensory description. 3. Change that paragraph or two into a vivid poem.
