Three Little Sheep by Rob Lewis

An endearing picture book told in rhyming couplets. 'Quick!' says Olwen. 'We'd better find somewhere to hide! Or that wolf will catch us ...and eat us up for tea!' Tir na n-Og Award winner 2011.


Whilst out one day in the meadow, three sheep wearing their favourite ribbons hear loud singing coming from a hole in the ground. When a stone falls over the edge, it isnt a friendly miner who pops out but a disgruntled wolf! Fearing for their lives, Olwen, Meg and Flo flee through trees, are attacked by bees, swim a river, climb a steep slope, struggle through a bramble patch and trudge through a bog before arriving home at their shed, bedraggled, ribbon-less but safe. Unfortunately their relief is short-lived

The stark illustration of Four pairs of eyes instead of three! and the startling wolfs Hello! as he turns on the light has the reader gripped with anticipation. Surely there can't be a happy ending for the three little sheep or can there?

Once more Rob Lewis has produced a gem!
