Product description

The hilarious, inspirational tale of a chubby little piglet who dreams of herding sheep. When Babe, an orphan piglet, is won by Farmer Hoggett at a fair, he is quickly adopted by Fly, the farmyard sheep-dog. Inspired by Fly’s skill at herding sheep, Babe is determined to learn everything he can from his new mentor – even though the other animals laugh at him. He knows he’ll never be a sheep-dog. But can Babe prove himself against the odds, and become a true sheep-pig? Full of wonderful animal characters, this is an unforgettable story about defying obstacles and reaching for dreams.

    Loved this book. I saw the film first and enjoyed it, but when i read the book It was so much better than the film. Both sad and exciting a story of a pig who doesn’t know whether he’ll live or be eaten for xmas dinner.. Excellent.
