Once upon a time there was a black lamb born to a flock of white sheep.
"How unusual," said the mother ewe.
"How very unusual," said her sister.
So begins the story of The Black Sheep, who takes his place in the herd and is loved as the others. But when The Old Ram tells him about a mythical herd of black sheep beyond The Great Forest, the quest begins. Mary Beach's paintings lend enchantment to this tale of adventure and discovery.
