''These stubborn sheep,'' the farmer sighs,
''won't open up their sleepy eyes.
But I know how to wake this crowd.
I'll make some noise and make it loud.''
From pounding on pots and pans to playing a screechy violin, Farmer Simpson makes all sorts of commotion to wake up his flock of sleepy sheep, but nothing works! Then Farmer Simpson gets a brilliant idea -- he decides to bring home a puppy who will surely be able to wake the snoozing sheep with its loud barks. But the farmer is in for a surprise -- his sheep wake up, but not in ways he expected! Author and illustrator Bruce Arant presents a tender tale about the virtues of using a gentle nudge when friends won't budge.
