The story is about an extremely spoiled young princess. Her parents deny her nothing. For her 8th birthday she asks for a pig. After viewing all of the pigs in the kingdom, Penelope picks a skinny pig named Lollipop. The owner is also invited to the palace to care for the pig. After much training, the pig is palace-trained and the princess learns to be a more respectful and kind person. Things work out well for the pig and her trainer as well, he is no longer poor and hungry but instead becomes a duke and the pig is no longer hungry and is ennobled Lady Lollipop.

This was a good story for elementary girls. I don't think many boys would be interested. It was cute and the story was entertaining, The Royal family learned a lot from the pig. The pictures were really cute

Lollipop is a homely pig chosen as a present by the spoiled Princess Penelope for her 8th birthday. Her owner, Johnny, has trained this pig to obey commands much as a dog would, and comes to live at the palace with the pig. The King secretly engages the boy to train his daughter as well, as she is getting out of hand. This predictable story teaches a couple of lessons to the readers--the problem of selfishness and not judging by appearances--without beating the reader with those messages. The illustrations complement the text, which is roughly a 3rd grade level. ( )

This book is a sweet read that is predictable. There is quite a bit of foreshadowing that would be helpful when teaching prediction. This book would be a pleasure for the age group it is intended for (1-4th), older children may find it boring.

"The author of BABE, THE GALLANT PIG offers another winner with this tale of a bright pig and her canny young keeper ‘training’ a spoiled princess. . . . Move over, Wilbur."— KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review)

Lollipop is no ordinary pig. According to her young trainer, Johnny Skinner, she’s the smartest pig in the entire kingdom. When people stare into Lollipop’s bright, intelligent eyes, it somehow changes them for the better. But can Lollipop win over the spoiled Princess Penelope - and her not-so-pig-friendly parents, the King and Queen? With humorous black-and-white illustrations by Jill Barton, Dick King-Smith’s tale about a special pig - and some memorable humans, too - will delight his legions of loyal fans!
