The Lovereading4Kids comment

A catchy rhyming text propels this entertaining story of how the wily sheep manage to see off the predatory but foolish wolf. Lou Pine thinks he’s one cool and clever wolf but all his well-made plans go badly wrong – especially when he is confronted by Rambo the ram. Great illustrations capture the wolf’s tricks and the equally inventive ways the sheep outwit him.


The Great Sheep Shenanigans by Peter Bently

'A lamb for my supper will taste mighty fine!' Thought a wily old wolf by the name of Lou Pine. As he sneakily, slyly snuck up on the flock - But it wasn't the sheep that were in for a shock...With a stunningly cunning plan, Lou Pine, finds a disguise that is sure to deliver a lamb stew or two. But this flock of sheep aren't quite the dumb mutton they seem... From the author and illustrator of The Great Dog Bottom Swap.
