A little pig goes a long way . . .
"Mum, " said Babe.
"Why can't I learn to be a sheep-pig?"
Fly, the sheep-dog, looked at her strange new foster-child with astonishment. The little piglet she called Babe had been won at a fair by Farmer Hogget and was surely destined to be fattened up for the family freezer - yet here he was, wanting to herd sheep!
Who'd ever heard of such a thing? But Babe was determined to learn and so kind-hearted Fly taught him everything she knew, wondering what would happen when Farmer Hogget noticed what was going on . . .
