The Cow Who Fell to Earth
The only thing is, it's not a star that has fallen from the night sky, it's a jet pack wearing little cow who is lost.
Unfortunately attempts at communicating with the cow are stymied by the fact that all the cow can say is "WOOO".
He is desperate to get home but this is going to be a tough job if nobody can understand anything he tries to tell them!
However, the sheep all rallied round the poor little fellow and they got him a blanket and, obviously they must have been British sheep, because they also brought him a cup of tea.
They asked him to tell them his story, which he did, but "Wooo, woo-woo, woo-woo" meant nothing to the sheep. Though they did decide that he needed a name and they gave him the name Dave.
Dave could see she had a problem at that point!
The sheep asked Bertha the cow for help, but she couldn't understand the little cow, either.
Kevin the cat, Pamela Pig and the farm dog Rufus were all consulted, but they all couldn't help.
But then the situation becomes a bit more complicated when some chickens managed to launch themselves into space using Dave's jet pack.
With the aid of a photograph of Dave and her family, the sheep realise they have to get Dave back home to the Moon.
But how will they do this without the aid of the jet pack?
