Charlotte is different from the other sheep. She likes to explore the world around her, climbing up trees and wandering near the dangerous road while the wary old sheep "tsk, tsk." But when danger strikes, only Charlotte is brave enough to go for help and save the day. This beautifully illustrated tale speaks to all shy little sheep who stand out from the crowd and aren't afraid to follow their dreams.
A "New York Times" Best Illustrated book
"Each dreamlike image is suffused with colors that are rich yet subdued a kind of Chagall-meets-Rothko mash-up that suggests sleepy-time happiness." -"New York Times Book Review"
"The artwork . . . is both handsome and just a bit whimsical." -"Booklist"
"Brave Charlotte is a wonderfully illustrated book. You'll think of Charlotte as smart and brave when the other sheep think she is silly for traveling to get help. A great read." -Book Review Cafe,
