The Sheep-pig is one of Dick King-Smith's most famous tales. It shot to further fame when the film adaptation, Babe, was released in 1995. Why can't I learn to be a 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.

I expect it's because of what you did yesterday," said Fly proudly, as they walked to heel together up the hill. The boss must be very pleased with you, dear. You can watch me working.

Published by Puffin (first published January 1st 1983). Dick King-Smith’s tale of Babe - the successful sheep-pig - carries hints of an allegorical fable, but stays just the right side of entertainment to be an engaging, and to my mind interesting read for early KS2 or advanced KS1. The story is set within an idealized agricultural landscape, an essentially timeless idyll, with only slight nods to anything resembling modernity. The setting is both strikingly familiar, and hopelessly alien.

Excellent book, if not a very short read. But this just makes it an wonderful candidate for read-aloud sessions in the classroom or bedroom. I find the movie superior, but the book still holds a special place in my heart due to it being the origins of such a wonderful film. It pretty much follows the movie exactly, in fact, I can't think of any scene they left out... I also really enjoyed the literature-only version of the famed "bah-ram-ewe" password.

"I may be ewe, I may be ram,
I may be mutton, may be lamb,
But on the hoof or on the hook,
I bain't so stupid as I look."

The most awesome book in history. Seriously, this book has a great philosophy, great characters, and uplifting humor. I highly recommend it for both children and adults.

As a teacher librarian I read this delightful book to hundreds of children, long before it was made into the movie, 'Babe'. I loved it because it taught that being polite and considerate got you a lot further than being rude and obnoxious. Dick King Smith writes well and with great humour. I never had a class that wasn't totally enraptured by his stories. He has written many more wonderful books for children, e.g 'The Fox Busters', ' Martin's Mice', 'The Cuckoo Child', 'The Mouse Butcher'.
I would recommend'The Sheep Pig' for any primary/junior child and for all adults who enjoy reading to their children.
This book is a favourite of mine to give as a gift, I am disappointed that you don't have it in stock, I am down to my last copy and loath to part with it.
The cover attracts me. It is about some animals. The picture is using the real photo of the animals, which create a very gentle mood. And the background is very beautiful. The title is special. I had listened sheep dog but have not listened sheep pig. So that I think it is interesting. I expect that it is a happy story. But actually, it is touching and makes readers to introspected and stimulates deep thought. It is very surprise to me.
Babe is the leading role. Babe was a little pig with no mother. He came to live with Farmer Hogget and his sheepdog, Fly. Babe wants to like Fly being a sheepdog. Fly loved Babe and taught him many sheepdog lessons. Babe was a clever and polite little pig. But Mrs Hogget wanted to kill Babe. She wanted to make a Christmas dinner for the farmer. One day Babe helped his boss, Farmer Hogget. And he learned to talk to his sheep. Farmer Hogget made a plan. He wanted to take babe to the British Sheepdog Trials.
I like this book because it is easy to understand what the story was. So I don not need to read dictionary with this book. And this book makes me to introspect my attitude of communicate with the others. I need to learn form Babe. Polite to other is important; get angry is only to get worse in the incident. And work hard is also an element to succeed. This is want I learn form the book.
The story of the book is friction. I am very like this book and I think you may also like this book.
