Author(s): Fox, Mem
Here is the blue sheep, and here is the red sheep. Here is the bath sheep, and here is the bed sheep. But where is the green sheep?
Mem Fox and Judy Horacek take you on a wildly wonderful adventure in their rollicking search for the green sheep. Mem has never owned a sheep, let alone a green one, but she does admit to having woolly thoughts from time to time. Judy loves drawing things, especially sheep. This is her first flock.
