From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-Inspired by a true story, this picture book debut tells the story of Sweet Pea, a lamb who is very sick. Everyone in the farmyard is worried, including Farmer John, who takes quick action by summoning Vet Alison to treat Sweet Pea's injured leg and fever. She promises Sweet Pea that when she is fully healed a special treat awaits her in the greenhouse: a sleepover with all of her farm friends. Sweet Pea and the other farm animals like many of the same things young children enjoy when sleeping over at friends' houses such as eating delicious food, dressing up, dancing, and listening to bedtime stories. Photo-illustrations offer readers comical close-ups of Sweet Pea and her pals combined with digitally manipulated backdrops that lend the tale a fantastical feel. Text incorporates dialogue and uses refrains to show the anthropomorphized farm animals' concern for Sweet Pea and celebration for her recovery. Sweet Pea is a cutie, but there are far better farm-themed options available.

Book Description Little, Brown. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Book Condition: New. One of the big news stories in the publishing world in 2015 was this irresistible picture-book sensation from Vermont farmers and artists John and Jennifer Churchman, illustrated with the authors' beautiful, almost magical altered photos. Initially self-published, it was an instant hit in local bookstores and was quickly snapped up by Little, Brown. The charming tale for readers 4 to 8 was inspired by the plight of Sweet Pea, one of the Churchmans' own sheep. It tells how, when she took ill, Sweet Pea was brought to the farm's greenhouse to recuperate—and how, once she got better, she was allowed to have a "sheepover" there with all of her farmyard friends. The Churchmans' dogs, ducks, and all of their woolly livestock get into the act—with a few cameos by owls, foxes, and other nearby wildlife—creating an enchanting image of a picturesque little farm. 40.
