In this humorous storybook, Sheep and Goat bleat in their meadow all day long. Marleen Westera records these wooly quadrupeds' heated discussions about everything from earthly affairs to Goat's birthday and Sheep's family. Sylvia van Ommen's illustrations convey the stories using only a few strokes of the brush. She shows with limited means that however sheepish they may seem, Sheep and Goat know what matters in life.
