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
"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. Ages 9 — 12. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

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

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
