''These stubborn sheep,'' the farmer sighs,
''won't open up their sleepy eyes.
But I know how to wake this crowd.
I'll make some noise and make it loud.''
From pounding on pots and pans to playing a screechy violin, Farmer Simpson makes all sorts of commotion to wake up his flock of sleepy sheep, but nothing works!
Bruce Arant brings his sheep back into the fold in this sequel to the award-winning Simpson's Sheep Won't Go to Sleep!

He lives in Omaha, Nebraska.
