Synopsis

Pete the Sheep by Jackie French

A hilarious new story, celebrating style and individuality, from the award-winning creators of 'Diary of a Wombat'. Laugh out loud at this shaggy-sheep tale, made for shearing! When Shaun the sheep-shearer starts work at a new farm the other shearers are gobsmacked by his unusual companion. Shaun doesn't have a sheepdog. Shaun has Pete!a sheep-sheep! Much to the other shearers dismay, the sheep take to Shaun and Pete, and in no time they are refusing to be shorn by any other team. So in jealous anger, they turf Shaun and Pete out of the barn to fend for themselves. Luckily, our dynamic duo know there's more than one way to shear a sheep and soon business is booming!in 'Shaun's Sheep Salon'! This brilliantly funny and original story will have children and parents laughing out loud.

Reviews

Praise for 'Diary of a Wombat': 'Bruce Whatley's illustrations bring the story to life in a way that is both endearing and amusing. It's easy to see why this book has won several awards in Jackie French's native Australia. It deserves to be a huge hit here too, as it feels really fresh and original.

'French and Whatley have conjured an affectionate, believable wombat self-portrait.'
