From AudioFile:

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. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Review:

Better known as Babe, 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. Dick King-Smith is a master of stories about animal 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. Stephen Thorne narrates Babe's story with ease and wit and never neglects King-Smith's finely tuned sense of kindness. This [HighBridge] audiobook can easily become a family favorite. -- The Christian Science Monitor, February 27, 1997; Audiofile, Dec/Jan 1998/1999

This is the story that inspired the Babe movie: enjoy almost two hours of fine audio narration in which reader Stephen Thorne adds high drama and action to the story of a pig who searches for a way to escape his fate. This complete, unabridged story will appeal to all ages. -- Midwest Book Review
