My favorite animal story. It's so adorable!

STORY - Babe (or B-a-a-a-a-a-b as pronounced by the sheep) is a pig who is raised by a collie sheepdog and wants to follow in his mother's footsteps. Most of the story takes place on a sheep farm somewhere in Wales or maybe Ireland (not sure). Yes, it's totally fictitious and unbelievable, complete with talking animals, but it's heartwarming and clever. If you saw the movie "Babe," this is the same story.

PERFORMANCE - Good job.

OVERALL - I listened to this book alone because I loved the movie years ago and wanted to hear the story again, but I'd highly recommend it for family road trips! One caution for animal-lovers, however: There is a sad part, but it doesn't last long and then the story is happy again.

I loved it

If you lived the movie Babe you will love the story it's based on. I love this story very much. I'm sure you will too.
