One of the Beano’s most popular cartoon strip characters, Derek the Sheep, makes his long-awaited entry into a bumper collection. Existing fans of Derek as well as children who enjoy a more graphic approach to reading will love this bumper collection.

Synopsis

Derek The Sheep by Gary Northfield

A day in the life of Derek the Sheep is no forage in the field. Oh no. It's flippin' hard work, what with all those other pesky animals on the farm! Wherever Derek might be or whatever he might be up to, you can be sure there's something for him to get his wool in a twist about. But the cantankerous Derek is also not one to miss an opportunity.
