Synopsis

Peg the Little Sheepdog by Sandra Klaassen

Peg the little sheepdog is too shy to be a good farm dog. All Peg's brothers and sisters have found new homes -- but who wants a sheepdog that's scared of lambs? Peg is lonely until a new family move in nearby and take her home. They love her but Peg isn't used to living in a house and she's still not very brave. Will she ever be a good family dog? This touching story of family love and teaching a new pet is a wonderful companion to Sandra Klaassen's much-loved Uan the Little Lamb. Her heartwarming illustrations abound with gentle fun and the beauty of the Scottish Hebrides.

Reviews

'This is an enchanting story about Peg, the shyest and most nervous of a litter of sheepdog pups ... Kelpies are maintaining their excellent reputation with this new picture book.'
