Summary note: A piglet comes to Farmer Hogget's farm, where he is adopted by an old sheepdog and accomplishes amazing things. Knopf is proud to present a handsome 20th-anniversary edition of Dick King-Smith's bestselling novel that became an Academy Award nominated movie. When Babe arrives at Hogget Farm, Mrs. Hogget's 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 Hogget₂s 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.
