Here we have a brilliant reading by Nigel Lambert. His creation of Ace, the special pig, is totally convincing with his cheeky character and his piggy squeals and snorts. Farmer Tubbs has a lovely country accent and Nanny, Ace's goat-friend, has the fluting, aristocratic tones of a Dowager. Farmer Tubbs saves Ace from slaughter because it seems the curiously marked pig can understand every word that's said to him. The truth is, he can, and he's soon insinuating his clever way into the farmhouse. Another funny and absorbing Dick King-Smith story to add to those already recorded by Nigel Lambert for Chivers.
