Argyle the sheep finds comfort in belonging but also requires time away from the flock. Of course, as with all good children’s books, this one features some fine illustrations which are wonderfully executed by John Sandford. Actually, the illustrations along are well worth the price of the book.

Argyle the sheep finds comfort in belonging but also requires time away from the flock. After his white wool changes into colorful stripes-caused by devouring some delicious flowers-his enterprising owners use his unique fleece not only to create Scotland's first pair of plaid socks but also to establish a prosperous business. But fame is fleeting. They go perfectly with the simply yet tongue-in-cheek text the author provides.

This was one of my children's favorite books growing up and now I am reading it to my grandchildren.

Loved this cute story when I was young and I am so excited to have found a copy to pass on to my baby boy! Bought a second one as part of a newborn gift to our friends.

everyone has a book that they can recite almost verbatim even years later from their childhood -- this is mine! a wonderful story about being yourself, plus incredible illustrations!

Argyle is a very creative, clever and fun story. Found this when it was first published and have shared many copies with new babies over the years. It is always enjoyed.

Ever wonder how and why we have Argyle socks? Well this little well written fable will fill you in on the details. It will also tell you that the fifteen minutes of fame that half the world seems to seek is not all that it is cracked up to be.

This is a funny little book and by funny I mean that when you read it closely (as all books should be), you will find hilarious bits of humor and double meanings tucked all over the place in the wool. Every time I read this little work I find myself smiling and snickering from page to page.

Argyle is a sheep; a Scottish sheep and looks and lives like all the other sheep there in the highlands. He is quite satisfied with his life and all is going quite well until he strays from the flock one day and eats some colorful flowers. Argyle’s world changes as does the world of MacDougal the shepherd and his wife when she knits the first ever pair of Argyle from the wool of this colorful sheep. Argyle becomes famous; famous until his color begins to fade and then vanishes – Oh my!

Of course, as with all good children’s books, this one features some fine illustrations which are wonderfully executed by John Sandford. Actually, the illustrations along are well worth the price of the book. They go perfectly with the simply yet tongue-in-cheek text the author provides. The book even makes a bit of a political statement which some readers may find amusing while others may not.

All in all this is a delightful book that belongs on your child’s book shelf.
