AAARRROOOooo! What's making that hair-raising howl? Can Bitzer the sheepdog and his flock find the beast - before it finds them? Characters from Aardman's Shaun the Sheep step from screen to page in the second of an original illustrated fiction series, Tales from Mossy Bottom Farm.

***Some of our lucky readers reviewed the first in the Shaun the Sheep series, The Flock's what they thought...'I liked this book because it was a good plot. I really like Shirly on chapter seven. I like the bit where the frogs got dressed up in swimming gear.' and 'Very funny book with great pictures, would love to read more.'

What's that howl? Is it Shaun the sheep playing one of his pranks? The Farmer practising his trombone? Or is it a ...beast? Can Shaun and Bitzer come up with a plan to catch the beast - or are they all doomed?

This is the second title in a new fiction series based on the TV series Shaun the Sheep from Aardman studio, creators of Wallace and Gromit.

Rob Goodchild, Head of Licensing at Aardman Animations said, ‘We are delighted to be working with Walker Books at such an exciting time for them and for Shaun the Sheep. The Mossy Bottom Farm series will bring brand new stories and characters from Shaun’s world to a range of young fiction books. We know how much families enjoy watching the TV show and are sure they will take the same pleasure from reading these books together.'

Here's a teaser trailer for the new Shaun the Sheep movie to be released in Spring 2015.
