Synopsis

A little lamb named Mary was left all alone in the middle of a big field. "Baa," she cried. "Baa, baa."

A mischievous little lamb named Mary makes friends with the children of Cranberry Island

Mary's mother has forgotten about her, but luckily the abandoned lamb soon finds a home with kindly Mrs. Paradise. Mary is a curious little animal. She loves to discover what the neighborhood children and their pets are doing.
But Mary's curiosity also gets her into trouble, especially with grown-ups. When something must be done about the wayward lamb, Mrs. Paradise comes up with a solution that makes everyone happy-even little Mary!
