Where is the Green Sheep?

Where is the Green Sheep?

by Mem Fox Illustrated by Judy Horacek

There are red sheep and blue sheep as well as sheep that play in bands and act as clowns, but the green sheep can't be found — at least for a while.

The search is on in this cozy, sheep-filled story from acclaimed author Mem Fox and popular Australian cartoonist Judy Horacek. Complete with sleepy rhymes and bright illustrations, this book is sure to delight children of all ages, from the very young to those just beginning to read.
