From pounding on pots and pans to playing a screechy violin, Farmer Simpson makes all sorts of loud noises to wake up his sheep, but nothing works! Then he gets a brilliant idea: he decides to bring home a puppy who will surely be able to wake the snoozing sheep with a loud bark. But Farmer Simpson is in for a surprise. His sheep do finally wake up, but not at all in the way he expected. A sweet, tender tale about the virtues of using a gentle nudge when friends wont budge. Hardcover. Full color throughout.
