Babe is a little pig who doesn't have a real mother. He lives with Farmer Hoggett's sheep-dog, Fly, who looks after him like one of her own children. Babe must learn how to talk to sheep before the British Sheep-dog Trials - and before Mrs Hoggett turns him into Christmas dinner! The Sheep-Pig by Dick King-Smith has been made into a hugely popular and successful film called Babe. Recommended for younger learners.
