Book Trailer: Babe (The Gallant Pig)

June 7th, 2011 by

This book trailer for Babe: The Gallant Pig was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Multi-Animal Adventures theme. For more on Babe: The Gallant Pig, check out our “Animal House” podcast.

We all know that Charlotte made Wilbur famous for being “some pig.” But the porcine hero of Dick King-Smith’s Babe: The Gallant Pig gets famous for another reason: he’s a sheep-pig! (That means he’s a pig who herds sheep, NOT a weird half-sheep-half-pig creature. Gross…) Watch our video to meet this extraordinary pig!
