The Lovereading4Kids comment

Quentin Blake’s award winning picture books have been delighting readers for decades. In this classic story of two friends, Beatrice the ewe and Vanessa the nanny-goat set off from the field where they have spent their days nattering and chomping in search of an adventure. How these two harmless old creatures manage to frighten off a pack of wolves and a great big brown bear with the help of a few things in a capacious bag and a lot of ingenuity is a particular gem.
