The Lovereading4Kids comment
October 2014 Book of the Month A rip roaring tale from Mossy Bottom Farm where a most unusual talent show is about to take place. It’s the chickens versus the sheep. They are pretty evenly matched but the sheep have a very big problem on their hands. Shirley, the star singer of the flock, is suffering a terrible attack of stage fright. Shaun needs all his ingenuity to make sure she gets up on stage and gives her best performance ever! Hilarious farmyard stories that will delight newly confident readers.
