Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Knopf is proud to present a handsome 20th-anniversary edition of Dick King-Smiths bestselling novel that became an Academy Award-nominated movie. When Babe arrives at Hogget Farm, Mrs. Hoggets thoughts turn to sizzling bacon and juicy pork chops—until he reveals a surprising talent for sheepherding, that is. Before long, Babe is handling Farmer Hoggets flock better than any sheepdog ever could. Babe is so good, in fact, that the farmer enters him into the Grand Challenge Sheepdog Trials. Will it take a miracle for Babe to win?

Complete with the original text and stunningly reillustrated by acclaimed artist Maggie Kneen, this anniversary edition of Babe is perfect to introduce a new generation of readers to the magical story of a pig like no other.
