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 wonderfully-realised animal characters who can charm the socks off anyone, this is an unforgettable story about defying obstacles and reaching for dreams.

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany The Sheep-Pig.

    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.
