PB spends her summer on Fox Island with the other sheep and goats, but she's more interested in stargazing than nibbling on the grass. She knows a famous astronomer once visited Toads Cove, and has set her sights on following in his path and finding a comet. Her determination irks a cantankerous old goat who plots to undermine her efforts.

This playful poetic tale about a sheep who won't give up and an old goat who learns a thing or two is inspired by the author's community, where sheep and goats really do graze on islands off the coast, and a famous astronomer really did once visit.

Award-winning artist Veselina Tomova's illustrations offer a delightfully whimsical complement to this charming story.
