In one of the books, Lamb All Alone, there’s a flood in Ben’s village, and the sheep in the field at the end of his garden are in danger.

Ben’s family call the RSPCA who come to help transport the sheep to safety. But one tiny lamb is left behind!

Ben has a brilliant idea of how they can save it – but he and the RSPCA need to act quickly to rescue the lamb.

And in case the book inspires you to find out more about sheep, the RSPCA has given us some quick sheep facts for you:

1. Sheep usually give birth once a year and have one to three lambs. Even though some ewes have single lambs or triplets, twins are the most common.

2. A lamb drinks its mother’s milk for about four months and then it eats grass, hay and grain.

3. Lambs can identify their mother by her bleat.

4. A group of sheep is known as a flock.

5. Sheep are able to see behind themselves without having to turn their head.
