Waterstones Says

From the anarchic imagination that produced The Steves and I Am Bat comes a typically wry tale of a very suspicious looking sheep with a not-so-hidden agenda. Mixing chuckles with a winning message about acceptance and fitting in, Brenda is a Sheep is another corker from the marvellous Morag Hood.

Brenda Is A Sheep is a massively mischievous and heart-warming story about being accepted, from Morag Hood - the award-winning creator of The Steves, I Am Bat, Aalfred and Aalbert, and author of Sophie Johnson: Unicorn Expert.

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 hilarious twist on the classic wolf-in-sheep's-clothing fable.

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 *
Let's face it, we could all do with a good laugh right now. If you want to send your child to sleep with a smile on their face, hunt out a Morag Hood book for bedtime. * Books With Baby *
This book is a heap of spaghetti giggles. With each page turn comes a new level of wacky in this book. Tiny Horse is a giant force to be reckoned with. I have a feeling we may see more of Tiny Horse in books to come! -- Picture Book Perfect

“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

“Delightfully dark while popping with colour!”

Great fun - I'm a huge Morag Hood fan and this didn't disappoint!

Brenda may not look much like a sheep, and when she’s busy chasing her wooly friends and brewing up batches of mint sauce while planning a... More
