Brenda Is a Sheep (Paperback)Morag Hood (author)
- In stock
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.

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
