Publisher Comments:

I loved this book from the first chapter to the last. -John Lloyd, The Bookbag

Hilarious crime caper involving a gang of sheep and a mobile phone...what more could you ask for? -Books Monthly

...The most unlikely of all epic adventure novels you will ever come across. -James, Kid's Compass

OH MY GRASS

When Sal the sheep is bonked on the head by an unidentified falling object, it can only mean one thing: Lord Aries, the Sheep of all Sheepdom is in trouble, and the sheep posse must save him.

Little do the sheep know that the mysterious object is actually a cell phone dropped by a couple of baaaaad bank robbers who will do anything to get it back. And a couple of woolbags aren't going to stand in their way

And so the quest of the Warrior Sheep begins.

The bravest sheep in the universe are in for a wild ride

Review:

"In a series launch, this husband-and-wife team sends a quirky group of characters careening across England at a madcap pace. When a mobile phone falls from the sky and onto a field, five rare-breed sheep with distinct personalities (and a love for rap music) are convinced that it is the magical Baaton of ancient ovine prophecy, and that they must return the item to its rightful owner, Lord Aries. Dropped from a hot air balloon by two bumbling bank employees who have scammed customers out of their savings, the phone actually contains evidence of the crime. One of their victims is the feisty owner of the sheep, who (with her grandson in tow) pursues her missing animals, as do the bankers, who are intent on retrieving the phone. While the sheep's final goal feels tenuous, it's all about the journey: barnyard puns (including a llama lama who speaks in parables) and the running conceit of the herd's unusual intelligence, despite their share of woolly-headed moments, will go a long way in keeping middle-grade readers engaged.

Synopsis:

When a silvery object falls from the sky, the five sheep of Eppingham farm take a break from butting fence posts to undertake an important mission: save the Sheep God and all of the sheeply nation. The Eppingham Posse-Oxo, Links, Jaycey, Wills, and Sal-is fleeced up and ready. Five for all and all for five

But who are the men in the yellow car and why are they following our fearless woolly warriors?

The quest of the warrior sheep has begun.

Praise for The Warrior Sheep:

I can only suspect the authors planned a book with the exuberance, wit, charm and action of the best Aardman Animations creations. I can only declare that they succeeded. -John Lloyd, thebookbag.co.uk

...the most unlikely of all epic adventure novels you will ever come across.

Sal knows all the prophecies from her favorite poem, “Songs of the Fleece,” but she doesn’t know much about modern technology. That’s how she misinterprets a cell phone falling on her head from a hot-air balloon as a struggle between the great Lord Aries and his nemesis, Lambad the Bad.

Under Sal’s direction, the sheep leave their farm near London on a quest to return the Baaton (cell phone) to the great ram with the golden horns where he lives in the north. That’s when the fun really begins.

The Quest of the Warrior Sheep by Christine and Christopher Russell will have you laughing out loud as you follow the adventures of five sheep and their human pursuers. One is sure they have been abducted and altered by aliens, two want to retrieve the cell phone and destroy incriminating evidence it holds, and Tod and Gran just want to get their sheep back.

These sheep have quite a few adventures, all resulting from hilarious misunderstandings by both ovines and humans. As the quest continued, I didn’t see how the story could possibly be resolved, but the authors serve up a satisfying ending for all…well, almost. You’ll have to read it to see. This is the first in what promises to be a delightful series aimed at readers aged eight to 12. I highly recommend it.
