This amazing pig not only succeeded at the Grand Challenge Sheep-Dog Trials, but charmed movie audiences of children and adults alike. The original story of a pig who decides to train for the all-important job of herding sheep is a charmer, with or without Hollywood images of the Hoggett Farm and the beautiful, grassy dales. Dick King-Smith is a master of stories about animals with personality. His characters mix courage and sweetness in delightful measure. Babe's story is not sugar-coated, but it succeeds because of the characters' inherent quality and charm. Thorne narrates Babe's story with ease and wit and never neglects King-Smith's finely tuned sense of kindness. This audiobook can easily become a family favorite. It will enchant adults as much as children and send them looking for the array of audiobooks by Dick King-Smith. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
