This charming book tells the adventures of an outcast little black sheep: how he saved the whole flock in a snowstorm, put Polo the bossy sheepdog in his place - and gave the shepherd a great idea!

A story about being different, and being a hero.

Elizabeth Shaw was born in Belfast and lived most of her life in Berlin, where she moved after the Second World War. Well-known as an artist, she wrote and illustrated 23 books for children, many of which have been translated into several languages.

'particularly relevant now more than ever, this book could work well in Irish classrooms at delivering a positive message concerning racism. I would recommend this book as part of lessons on celebrating diversity and highlighting the negative effects of racism for any age group. The story and the illustrations will appeal to younger classes, while the veiled allegory will lead to interesting discussion in older classes about the challenges of being different in society today … a great investment for any teacher, working as a resource for both English and ethics’ Stuart Purcell, Co Dublin
