Synopsis:

Farmer Hogget's old sheepdog, Fly, adopts a piglet she names Babe and is astonished at how quickly he learns all she has to teach him. But plucky little Babe has even more surprises in store--and the farm will never be the same again. Basis for the 1995 film.

About the Author

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals.  After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.  Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites.  He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get enjoyment from what he does.  Among his well-loved books is Babe, The Gallant Pig , which was recently made into a major motion picture, and was nominated for an Academy Award.  

Dick currently lives with his wife in a small 17th-century cottage, about three miles from the house where he was born.
