The Baa-rilliant Adventure

When an angel appears in a blaze of light, Rumbly, Tumbly and Woolly are terrified!

When their excited shepherds run off to Bethlehem, the sheep don’t want to be left behind and race into an unexpected series of adventures. Falling in a hole, facing wolves all alone… who will save Rumbly, Tumbly and Woolly?

Their shepherd Asher, of course.

Written by Jennifer Somervell and illustrated by Zerika van Jaarsveld
