Gertrude always wins the prizes at the Wollomby country show. Shirl and the other sheep decide to try and win as well. Do they succeed, despite the frisky lambs?
A picture book story told in rhyme.

‘Brian has chosen a rollicking rhythm and rhyming text that make a perfect introduction to poetry and bush ballads for children. Younger kids will enjoy the story and hope for the smug Gertrude’s downfall; older kids will appreciate the finer details of fun internal rhymes and Aussie ingenuity.’
