So when he is taken in by Farmer Hoggets sheepdog, Fly, its only natural that he would want to follow in his foster mums paw-steps. Even with Babes considerable handicaps as a sheepdog--namely, that hes a pig--he manages to overcome all with his earnestly polite and soft-spoken ways, proving once again that might doesnt always make right. After saving the sheep from rustlers and wild dogs, Babe convinces Hogget that his idea of becoming a sheep-pig baint so stupid as it might look. But neither Hogget nor Babe, nor anyone else, could have predicted what follows. As utterly charming as Charlottes Web , this book is bound to pluck even the tightest heartstrings. Masterful characterization brings every personality to vibrant life, while Mary Rayners lively line illustrations only elucidate images Dick King-Smith has already planted in the readers mind. Herd the whole farmyard together: readers of all ages, ambitions, and antecedents will love this one. --Emilie Coulter
