A humorous book showing young readers how unexpected challenges can be triumphed by imagination and cooperation

Sheep aren't exactly renowned for their organization skills, so when 71 sheep arrange a game of soccer, things are always going to get interesting. When their ball gets stuck in a tree, how will all the sheep cooperate to retrieve it? And when an unexpected danger presents itself, how will the sheep organize themselves to stay safe—and finish their game of soccer?


"It's a fun way to explore the concept of cooperation as the sheep reveal that working together and using our minds and imaginations are often the best way to overcome the unexpected challenges of life." —Kids' Book Review
