Farmer McFitt’s mischievous sheep have escaped! Who wants to stay on the farm when they could be shot out of a cannon at the circus or go surfing at the beach—they even pose as art in a museum! Can Farmer McFitt round up this rowdy bunch in time for a wooly surprise?

This rollicking, rhyming read-aloud will become a favorite counting and bedtime book for parents and kids. Bill Mayer’s energetic, expressive sheep are adorably silly, and his pictures are chock-full of hilarious details kids will love.

Review: Hide and Sheep

User Review  - Kristy Isla - Goodreads

A rhyming and counting book about sheep. It starts with 10 sheep and goes all the way down to 1. It ties up nicely and the activities the sheep do are not familiar ones. However the illustrations are not as colorful and as bright as they could be. Read full review
