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
