Brenda Is A Sheep is a massively mischievous and hilarious story about being accepted, from Morag Hood - the creator of The Steves, I Am Bat and Aalfred and Aalbert.

Brenda says she is a sheep, but why does she look so different from her fluffy friends?

All the sheep adore Brenda. With her sharp pointy teeth and cool grey fur, she's the snazziest sheep around. But Brenda is also very hungry, and doesn't much like the taste of grass . . . she soon begins plotting the most delicious feast of all. But will the sheep notice that Brenda isn't quite the same as them?

A brilliant twist on the classic wolf-in-sheep's-clothing fable from the award-winning Morag Hood.

MEDIA REVIEWS
the superlative Morag Hood returns with Brenda Is a Sheep (Two Hoots), a suspense-filled account of a young sheep who isn't like the rest, what with her pointy teeth, antipathy to grass and increasing desire to eat her companions. But the flock love Brenda's unusual approach to sheephood; will their adoration change the predator's mind? This funny story of a wolf in sheep's clothing is delightfully deadpan. -- Imogen Russell-Williams * The Guardian *
Morag Hood's expertise at creating hilarious, tight concept books for 3- and 4-year-olds is more or less unsurpassed. Her bold, four-colour artwork in greens and oranges with grey and white is beautiful and striking, and the idea of a wolf in sheep's clothing - and the unexpected friendship between the wolf and the sheep - is perfect. * BookTrust *
Delights galore from the ever original Morag Hood * The Bookseller, Editor's Choice *

“Thrilling, dark and hilarious yet also touching!”

Not many picture books can claim to be all of the above. I’d loved ‘The Steves’ so was delighted to receive a reading copy of Brenda is a Sheep. Brenda is, in fact, not a sheep. She’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing!... More
