It takes one smart sheep to escape from a piano movers’ van and find his way home in this humorous friendship story for emerging and newly independent readers by beloved, award-winning author Gary D. Schmidt and coauthor Elizabeth Stickney.

Wilson is a curious sheep, and after he foolishly climbs into the back of a piano movers' truck, he ends up alone in the big city, far from the farm. But Wilson is also one smart sheep, and soon enough he's finding his way home to his worried owner by recognizing the sounds that he heard while he was trapped in the truck—a jackhammer, a calliope, a hotdog man. And could that be the excited barking of his friend Tippy, the border collie?

This lighthearted story about loyalty, problem solving, friendship, and independence is divided into short, action-packed chapters and has the cozy feel of a modern classic.

Chapter One

On Atwood Hill

Wilson was Abigail Atwood’s friendliest sheep.

Wilson was Abigail Atwood’s woolliest sheep.

And Wilson was Abigail Atwood’s smartest sheep.

That is a lot for one sheep to be.

Every morning, Wilson waited for Abigail to climb the stony path that led from her little red house to the sheep pen and the pasture at the top of Atwood Hill.

And every morning, Wilson waited for Tippy, Abigail’s faithful and obedient Border collie, who always came right behind her.

Good morning, Wilson, Abigail Atwood always said.

Baa, Wilson would say, and then Abigail Atwood would open the gate from the sheep pen to the pasture, and twenty-six sheep would crowd through. None of them ever stopped on the way to the thick grass.

Except Wilson, the twenty-seventh sheep.

Wilson always stopped, because he was friendly. He would rub his woolly head against Abigail’s knee. Then—and Abigail Atwood was sure he did this—Wilson would wink at her.
