What a sweet journey through the minds of a flock of sheep this book is! When they discover their shepherd murdered in the field, the flock sets out to solve the murder. Written from the point of view of the sheep themselves, this little sleeper of a novel transports the reader right into the scents, sights, fears, and (mis)understandings of a group of engaging individual sheep. You will smile, laugh outright, weep a little, and ache to read aloud to your loved one. Note also, the book is translated from German to English in one of the most competent and sensitive interpretations to sit on a shelf.

A fantastic murder mystery in which a flock of sheep try to figure out who killed their shepherd. The sheep make great characters (and, as it turns out, not too shabby detectives).
