The Lovereading4Kids comment
Bored with life as a sheep – and especially bored with the food on offer - Little Sheep makes a bold but very, very foolish decision that being a wolf would be more fun. But, when she is invited home for a meal by a new friend thinks begin to get very scary. Can Little Sheep save herself and her parents?
The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing by Bob Hartman
Once upon a time there lived a family of sheep. They grazed on grass, crunched on clover, and played on green pastures. Except for Little Sheep, that is, who was bored with her peaceful life. So she makes an unusual decision...Little Sheep is having a great time at wolf school in her new knitted wolf suit and has even made friends with Little Wolf! But things all become rather more complicated when Little Wolf invites her home for dinner...
The illustrations put me in mind of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are with their cross hatching shading. Little Sheep's expressions are always a joy and there are some nice visual jokes that start on the very first page... Good fun. -- Lorraine McDonald The Book Bag
A superb fish-out-of-water tale with more twists and turnarounds than a twisty-turny thing! Love it, love it, LOVE IT! -- Phil May Read It Daddy!
Delightfully and humorously illustrated right to the end - and there's a twist at the end to enjoy -- Parents In Touch
