This May, the 3.5-million copy bestselling classic Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek will be published for the first time in the UK, nearly twenty years since it became a huge hit in Australia.

In Oz, this is a beloved children’s classic akin to The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Dear Zoo. It’s a simple, fun book that teaches babies and toddlers about colours, wordplay, and opposites. 

Mem Fox is a highly acclaimed writer for early learners — her book Time For Bed was named by Oprah as one of the best children’s books of all time.

Here is the blue sheep, and here is the red sheep.
Here is the bath sheep, and here is the bed sheep.
But where is the green sheep?

Mem Fox is Australia’s most highly regarded picture-book author. Her first book, Possum Magic, is the bestselling children’s book ever in Australia, with sales of over three and a half million. Time for Bed is on Oprah’s list of the twenty best children’s books of all time. Mem has written over thirty picture books for children and five non-fiction books for adults.

Judy Horacek is an Australian cartoonist, artist, writer and children’s book creator.

Where is the Green Sheep? is published by Scribe UK on 13 May 2021.
