The Lost Sheep

An adaptation of the Christmas story with illustrations by Marieke Nelissen.

Gili wants to become a shepherd like her brothers, but they have their doubts.

Are girls suitable for herding sheep?

Then Gili lets her favorite sheep escape from the herd on a cold December night.

Are the brothers right after all?

In the pitch dark, Gili goes in search of her sheep.

She better not get lost or fall into a ravine.

And she prefers not to think about dangerous wolves at all.

But the thing about getting lost is that you don’t realize it until it’s already happened…

An atmospheric book about a runaway sheep, a brave girl

and a wolf with an appetite for two.
