Babe: The Gallant Pig
Speaking of English literature, Sparky and I are currently reading Babe: The Gallant Pig. Babe gets out of being Christmas dinner by becoming a sheep-pig. Too funny. But it goes way beyond that. It's a sweet story of a character who is brave and loyal to the bone. He doesn't hesitate in obeying his master or in honoring his foster mother. He doesn't stop to think of himself when he rescues the sheep from rustlers or from wild dogs. What a joy to share this with Sparky.
