My favriout part is the end but I can't tell you you'll have to find out. I would recommend this book to someone because it has funny parts and funny sentences that really made me laugh. I felt happy at the end and I liked it very much.

Babe is a children's story that will catch the imagination of all who read it. I loved this story and it is now one of my favorite books, as it was hilarious and funny to read.
