9780007228089: Pete the Sheep

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.

About the Author:

Jackie French was born in Sydney in 1953, grew up in Brisbane, graduated from the University of Queensland and moved to her present home in NSW bush land in her mid twenties. Over the past 10 years she has published over a hundred books on diverse subjects ranging from children's fiction to pest control! Bruce Whatley was born in the United Kingdom and emigrated with his parents to Australia during his childhood. He often collaborates on picture books with his wife, Rosie Smith.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–All the sheep shearers at Shaggy Gully have sheep dogs with names like Brute, Tiny, and Fang. A new shearer, Shaun, arrives with a sheep-sheep named Pete, who rounds up the animals with polite requests and compliments. Soon the sheep will only respond to Pete, and allow only Shaun to shear them. When the other shearers insist that they must go, Shaun opens a salon in town, styling the sheep's wool in innovative ways. When Brute, Tiny, and Fang desert their owners to have their fur styled, the other shearers finally join the salon and spend their time styling animals of all shapes and sizes. The creators of Diary of a Wombat (Clarion, 2003) have produced a bit of harmless, silly fluff that, while mildly amusing, is hardly likely to inspire rereading. Whatley's watercolor-and-colored-pencil illustrations are clean and crisp and work nicely with the text, but there is simply not much substance here.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
