About the book:

Mr. and Mrs. Sheep and the lame goat arrived at a spring to drink water. Mr. and Mrs. Sheep however broke into an argument which left them both thirsty while the lame goat drank its fill and played in the field.

The adventures of Mr. and Mrs. Sheep and the lame goat’ are taken from the folk culture of Iran. The series consists of three boxes with each box containing two stories. Each story at times cites several well-known Persian expressions and aphorisms. The books are placed inside a box that also holds game cards and puzzles that children find both pleasant and attractive. The stories are connected so that together the six stories demonstrate the lives of the three characters (Mr. and Mrs. Sheep and the lame goat). These animal characters live together with the lame goat that is both kind and intelligent as well as the hero of the books since despite having the physical handicap of being lame; he always makes the proper use of his mind.
