Sherman is a carefree lamb in the Good Shepherd’s flock. As Sherman grows into a young ram, he longs for adventure and acceptance by his peers. So, against his father’s warnings, he climbs “Pleasure Mountain.” There he encounters strange new enticements and dangers which at first seem exciting, but finally prove more than a young ram can handle on his own. Sherman finally admits his father was right when he called it “Sin Mountain,” but how will he escape and get back to the fold? And what great adventure has the Shepherd prepared for him?

Reviews of THE DANGEROUS JOURNEY OF SHERMAN THE SHEEP:
“Beautifully written. I highly recommend using it in a setting, either family or group, where you can take time to reflect and share on what has been read…. A must-read!”
− The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
“I hope parents take the time to read this wonderful book with their children. Davis captures the excitement of Sherman’s travels page after page. There are numerous opportunities to use Sherman’s adventures to discuss the temptations of our own world.”
− Just 4 Kids Magazine
“In that great tradition [of John Bunyan and C.S. Lewis]… A charming book with a great lesson… that should be given to all Christian parents with tweens, or youngsters approaching those tween years.”
− Kurt A. Johnson, Amazon.com Top 50 Reviewer
“I enjoy having audio versions of books for my children and I to listen to while driving or doing chores around the house, or even just to listen to in lieu of watching television and I have to say that The Dangerous Journey of Sherman The Sheep fits the bill for all of the above. Written by Dean Davis and read by Katie Leigh you and your children will be swept up in the telling of the tale.” (This review relates to the AUDIO version.)
