Lana Lynn and the New Watchdog

Coming Fall 2021

Lana Lynn and the New Watchdog

by Rebecca Van Slyke
illustrated by Anca Sandu

Fearless sheep Lana Lynn is all set to train her flock’s new watchdog, but will a case of mistaken identity derail her efforts and put the sheep in jeopardy?

The sheep pasture is in an uproar when they find out a new watchdog is coming to protect the flock, so the intrepid Lana Lynn decides to take training matters into her own hooves. And when a fierce-looking canine emerges from the woods, Lana Lynn jumps right into her efforts.

The new “watchdog” doesn’t quite catch on to herding or staying up all night guarding the sheep, but Lana Lynn isn’t deterred. As she continues showing this new “watchdog” the ropes, she gets a creeping suspicion that something isn’t right. And her fellow sheep could be in jeopardy!

Author Rebecca Van Slyke has created a charmingly overconfident heroine in Lana Lynn, accented by Anca Sandu’s adorable and funny illustrations. An ideal read-aloud full of good farm fun!
