Farmer Hoggett and Babe

Published on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

The King-Smith family have been lucky enough to receive this wonderful illustration of Farmer Hoggett and Babe from a talented little girl called Luna Silander who is in grade five in St Cyprian’s School in Cape Town, South Africa.

We think that Luna has perfectly captured the scene in The Sheep-Pig (Babe the Gallant Pig) where Farmer Hoggett first meets Babe and tries to guess his weight. Thanks very much, Luna!

Luna’s class are currently reading The Sheep-Pig in class. The King-Smith family would like to say a big hello to all of you. We hope you’re enjoying the book!

Here’s a picture of Dick reading the book to two of his grandsons, Will (right) and Charlie (left)…
