'Interface' is a series of essays, cases and stories written by Associate Professor Janet Sayers which can be used in education and training courses. The first essay is ''Babe' and Intercultural Communication'. This essay has been used by educators around the world to help classes understand some of the challenges of becoming intercultural. Babe is a gentle, humorous film, from a less paranoid and fearful time. This essay aims to discuss a central theme of the movie, inter-cultural adaptation, and the role affection and trust play in inter-cultural relations. Specifically, this essay discusses these inter-cultural themes in the context of who Babe becomes (a sheep-pig) and what his transformation into this hybrid may teach us about the inter-cultural adaptation journey.

This book has been my best buy on Smashwords. Another great animal saga by the wonderful Janet Sayers. More light-hearted than her work-in-progress Dogged, it nevertheless carries the same incisive understanding of relationships, human and animal. Reading this book has inspired me to watch the movie, Babe, for the first time. John Mackay
