Description
Dick King-Smith's classic story of Babe the sheep-herding pig is back with a charming new cover to win over a new generation of readers! When Babe arrives at Hogget Farm, Mrs. Hogget's thoughts turn to sizzling bacon and juicy pork chops. But before long, Babe reveals a talent no one could have expected: he can handle Farmer Hogget's stubborn flock better than any sheepdog ever could! When Farmer Hogget enters Babe in the Grand Challenge Sheepdog Trials, everyone, including his wife, thinks he is a fool. But he believes in Babe. Now it's just up to Babe to convince everyone else to believe in a sheep- pig !
