Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where to find them
But is that really what happened? Find out what Bo Peep and the sheep really got up to that day - a hide-and-seek game with a twist - in this charming and funny subversion of a well-known nursery rhyme.
A witty rhyming text is accompanied by delightful watercolour pictures, making this a perfect read-aloud or read-alone picture book.

"I’m bored!’ cried Little Bo Peep that day.
Play hide-and-seek with me.’
We should have known it would end in tears
sheep don’t do games you see."
