Scope and content
Biographical description: Ronald Gordon King-Smith was a prolific English writer of children’s books, primarily using the pen name Dick King-Smith. He is best known for THE SHEEP-PIG (1983), adapted as the film BABE (1995).

DKS’s agent at AP Watt is Pamela Todd (PT). There are many chatty letters between them discussing DKS’ work and also their respective private lives. They are often humorous and friendly in tone and provide insight on the author’s personal life and character. DKS sometimes addresses to PT as “Tadpole” and her unborn daughter as “Toots”.
