Sweet Pea & Friends, The SheepOver, is a charming story, beautifully illustrated, about an injured sheep, Sweet Pea, who gets to have a “sheepover” after she heals. John and Jennifer Chapman, from Essex, Vermont, based the story and photo illustrations on a true story. I met John at his booth at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival in Tunbridge with his border collie, Laddie, who features in the book and is even sweeter in real life. Copies of the book and cards are available in the shop.
