October 2014 Book of the Month A rip roaring tale from Mossy Bottom Farm where a most unusual talent show is about to take place. It’s the chickens versus the sheep. They are pretty evenly matched but the sheep have a very big problem on their hands. Shirley, the star singer of the flock, is suffering a terrible attack of stage fright. Shaun needs all his ingenuity to make sure she gets up on stage and gives her best performance ever! Hilarious farmyard stories that will delight newly confident readers.
Who will rock the talent show, chickens or sheep? Characters from Shaun the Sheep step from screen to page in the first of an original illustrated fiction series, Tales from Mossy Bottom Farm.
Can Shaun the sheep convince his jittery friend to wow the vole judges and take home the prize? Shaun the Sheep fans both old and new will flock to this funny, original story inspired by the internationally popular animated TV show from Aardman.
This is the first title in a new fiction series based on the TV series Shaun the Sheep from Aardman studio, creators of Wallace and Gromit.
Rob Goodchild, Head of Licensing at Aardman Animations said, ‘We are delighted to be working with Walker Books at such an exciting time for them and for Shaun the Sheep. The Mossy Bottom Farm series will bring brand new stories and characters from Shaun’s world to a range of young fiction books. We know how much families enjoy watching the TV show and are sure they will take the same pleasure from reading these books together.'
Here's a teaser trailer for the new Shaun the Sheep movie.
