In this fresh presentation of the story of the Good Shepherd and the lost lamb, bestselling children’s author Dandi Daley Mackall has written a creative two-sided flip book. Designed to tell the same story twice from two different, biblical points of view, the book allows the reader to enjoy the story of the lost lamb and then literally flip the book to read the story from the perspective of the shepherd. Utilizing humor, adorable illustrations, and an innovative format, these books provide readers with the added bonus of two books in one.

THE LOST LAMB'S SIDE OF THE STORY
I'm one in a hundred of white, woolly sheep Who stay by the Shepherd, awake or asleep.
But one day I dreamed of new fields, lush and green. I'd surely be happy in that lovely scene.
I took off a-trotting and plotting escape, My plan for green pastures was now taking shape.
I followed a path winding left, curving right. Then thunderclouds BOOMED, and a storm hit the night.
I ran for some bushes, but thorns scraped my back. My stomach was grumbling. The sky had turned black.
I heard in the distance the screech of an owl, The growl of a bear, and a wily wolf's howl.
Oh, why did I leave? Now I'm lost and alone. No Shepherd to guide me-no fault but my own.
WAIT! YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE FINISHED, DIDN'T YOU?
IT'S TIME TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK! CLOSE THEN FLIP THIS STORYBOOK!(Continues…)
