Abstract:

"It was love at first sight. When I met Roberta for the first time, I knew straight away that we belonged together . . ." For a little girl from the city, Roberta the sheep seems like the perfect pet: she's clever, clean, and sociable. But city life isn't easy for Roberta - there's the elevator to be negotiated, and the supermarket, and Sunday lunch with the family. And even though she adapts well to life in the apartment, the family begin to wonder if Roberta might be pining for something that life away from the fields and meadows can't offer. Charming illustrations, deadpan humor, and an underlying serious message about pets home alone in the city make this a fun and thoughtful read.
