Peg the sheepdog puppy lives with her family on a remote Scottish Hebridean island. But Peg is no ordinary sheepdog -- she's afraid of sheep!

Then one day, the family rescues a baby lamb and calls her Uan, which means "lamb" in Gaelic. But Peg is a bit worried about living with a little lamb.

How will Peg and Uan ever become friends?

Bringing together beautiful illustrations from Sandra Klaassen's much-loved picture books, Uan the Little Lamb and Peg the Little Sheepdog, this adorable board book introduces very young ones to these charming characters with a sweet story about friendship.


'An engaging story about Peg the puppy overcoming shyness. It's told with lovely images of rural life on a Hebridean island. With few words on the page, a simple storyline, and stiff board pages, this could be a delightful first book to share with babies as they grow.'
-- Juno
