"As soon as a young shepherd lies down to nap, his flock takes off after a butterfly. In rapid succession, the sheep are led by geese, a cat, pigs, rabbits, fish, and ducks. Their travels take them into the farmer's yard, his barn, cornfields, woods, and along a stream. Finally a dog drives them back to their awakening shepherd. He is now ready to have them follow his lead, but they are too tired. The story is told in short, simple sentences, one to a page. The action presents opportunities for colorful views of pastoral scenery. Details are attractively patterned. Cornstalks, flowers, and rushes are depicted in eye-catching designs. The stylized graphic art and simple narrative insure the book's success with the toddler set."
