The Sheep-Pig

When Babe, the little orphaned piglet, is won at a fair by Farmer Hogget, he is adopted by Fly, the kind-hearted sheep-dog. Babe is determined to learn everything he can from Fly. He knows he can’t be a sheep-dog. But maybe, just maybe, he might be a sheep-pig.

One of Dick King-Smith’s most famous tales, The Sheep-Pig shot to further fame with the 1995 blockbuster film adaptation, Babe.
