In this Chinese Zodiac picture book, a doctor finds a wounded sheep and restores its health. When a monster threatens the village and demands a child from each family for sacrifice, the sheep turns itself into a girl and volunteers to go. Using her wits, she drives the monster away. When it returns, the sheep sacrifices itself, and both turn into a rock formation that exists today.
