The runt of the piglet litter is nicknamed "Saddlebottom" by the rest of the farm animals because the white marking of a saddleback has slipped a bit. Since he's no good for showing, Saddlebottom is destined for the butchers. But he runs away and makes friends with a one-eyed cat called Bendigo.

Dorothea, an aristocratic Wessex Saddleback pig, considers it a disgrace that one of her children has the white saddle-shaped patch on his bottom and not on his back. Saddlebottom runs away from home and meets a very unusual cat, and his fortunes change dramatically.About the Author:
Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books. Dick wrote mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites. He enjoyed writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does. Among his well-loved books are Babe: The Gallant Pig, which was made into a major motion picture and was nominated for an Academy Award.
