          My kids and I read this book almost every day. It has lots of great captions with funny pictures. We spend lots of time discussing each page, and the best pages are about 'near' and 'far'. We move the book forward and back from our kids faces and they giggle every time.

          Here is the blue sheep, and here is the red sheep.
          Here is the bath sheep, and here is the bed sheep.
          But where is the green sheep?


          Mem Fox and Judy Horacek take you on a wildly wonderful adventure in their rollicking search for the green sheep.

          Mem has never owned a sheep, let alone a green one, but she does admit to having woolly thoughts from time to time.

          Judy loves drawing things, especially sheep. This is her first flock.
          Mem Fox

          Mem Fox was born in Australia, grew up in Africa, studied drama in England, and returned to Adelaide, Australia in 1970, where she has lived with her husband, Malcolm, and daughter Chloë, happily ever after.

          Mem Fox is Australia’s most highly regarded picture-book author. Her first book, Possum Magic, is the best selling children’s book ever in Australia, with sales of over three and a half million. And in the USA Time for Bed and Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge have each sold over a million copies. Time for Bed is on Oprah’s list of the twenty best children’s books of all time.

          Mem has written over thirty picture books for children and five non-fiction books for adults, including the best-selling Reading Magic, aimed at parents of very young children. Her most recent book Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes beautifully illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, was on the New York Times bestseller lists for 16 weeks in 2008/2009.

          Mem Fox was an Associate Professor in Literacy Studies at Flinders University in Adelaide (Australia), where she taught teachers for twenty four years until her early retirement in 1996. She has received many civic awards, honours and accolades in Australia, including two honorary doctorates. She has visited the United States over one hundred times, mostly in her role as a literacy expert although she is also a well-known author in America. She is an influential international consultant in literacy, but she pretends to sit around writing full time.
