Okay, here's another funny animal story--The Quest of the Warrior Sheep (Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, 2011) by Christine & Christopher Russell. The title almost says it all. I mean, warrior and sheep together in the same sentence is pretty funny.
But, of course, you want to know more. The story starts with 5 rare breed sheep, who are on a mission to save the great Lord Aries (king of Sheepdom) from Lambad, the bad. Mix in a dropped cell phone by bank robbers, the sheeps' owners--an old lady and her grandson, a farmer who thinks he saw aliens pick up the sheep, news reporters, and multiple means of transportation for a fun ride throughout the English countryside.
I love the sheep language. How can you not enjoy things like "Oh my grass!"? Each sheep has a unique personality, but you'll have to read it to see who says "omg." Colin Stimpson has done fun illustrations to go along with the text.
