Lola the sheep has the most extraordinary wool. It's soft and silky and is her pride and joy! But down on the farm, when the sun comes out, the wool comes off! Poor Lola is so upset by her haircut that she runs away to the far side of the farm where she sits all alone, waiting for it to grow back. And when it does, it's no longer silky, it's completely wild! But with it comes a wonderful surprise . . .

Thanks to a tiny chick, this self-obsessed sheep learns an important life lesson; that great friendships are more important than simply having great hair.

The Sheep Who Hatched an Egg is a funny, thoughtful, springtime story from award-winning, Gemma Merino, author of the bestselling The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water and The Cow who Climbed a Tree.
