{31 picture books} Pete the Sheep

Pete the Sheep

Day 2 of the 31 Picture Books challenge. Today’s book is Pete the Sheep by Jackie French, illustrated by Bruce Whatley. My sister gave this book to us for Christmas a few years ago and we all love it.

This is the story about a sheep sheep (not a sheep dog) and his boss Shaun, and about doing things differently.

It is an enjoyable story about sheep and sheep dogs and shearing. I don’t want to give too much away about this gorgeous tale.

I was lucky enough to grow up with a grandfather who had a sheep farm and we would go up to visit at Christmas time when they were shearing, so that is one thing that appeals to me. It is also a delightful story.

I’m so glad this challenge has got me dusting off this story.
