Written by: Alma Jordan
Illustrated by: Margaret Anne Suggs
Publisher: The O'Brien Press

It’s the beginning of a new year on Hazel Tree Farm, and with it comes a burst of new life.

Peter helps Dad to bring baby lambs into the world, while his sister Kate falls in love with next door’s fluffy chicks – and one in particular!

But something is wrong with sheepdog Peg, and one stormy night, she runs away. Through wind and rain, the children race to find her before it’s too late.

    About the Illustrator

    Margaret Suggs

    Margaret Anne Suggs

    Margaret Anne is a children’s book illustrator and can usually be found scribbling in a sketchbook. For a while she did product illustration for a clock company… but that’s a story for another time. In a digital world, Margaret Anne still works by hand, creating illustrations that are sometimes sweet, sometimes spicy, but always delightful. She was raised in the American Deep South and being a dual citizen has given her illustrations a uniquely cheerful colour palette and a distinct femininity.
