actually the book has been titled both The sheep pig and Babe: the gallant pig. I own the latter of the two but have seen both!

To clarify, the original title of the book by Dick King Smith was "The Sheep Pig". I'm not saying you're wrong, but British books have been renamed in America (Are you writing from the U.S.?) For another example, see "Harry Potter and the (Philosopher's/Sorcerer's) Stone" by JK Rowling.

Actually in the UK it's known as "The Sheep Pig". It was shown when I was a kid on BBC TV's Jackanory (many, many years before it was even made a film) as "The Sheep Pig". Like one of the writers have said many books (TV and Movies as well) are renamed when the cross the Atlantic (in both directions, many US films have had the same treatment)
