Kids who love wicked humor will gobble up this tale of a trickster sheep and a comically gullible turkey. Ewww!

Little Baa Baa is bored. So when Quirky Turkey comes along, the opportunity to make mischief is too good to resist. “What’s that?” asks Turkey, pointing at a suspicious something on the ground. “What’s what?” “That there.” “This here?” “Yes, that there.” “Oh, it’s just a pile of . . . smarty tablets.” “Ohhh. . .” After a well-sustained buildup evoking hilarity and disbelief, this kid-pleasing trickster tale will have readers both groaning and laughing out loud at the payoff.
Mark Sommerset is a writer and part-time sheep interpreter. Rowan Sommerset grew up with lots of pets. Together, Mark and Rowan Sommerset create picture books from their home on Waiheke Island, New Zealand, where they live with their son, Linden.

Editorial Reviews

The Sommersets' tale of sheep mischief (there's a warning on the cover that the book contains such) is an amusing read-aloud, particularly if the dialogue is exploited to its full effect.—Kirkus ReviewsThere’s an innocent Boynton-esque silliness to the pencil and digital art in subtle earthtones, and butter wouldn’t melt in the mouth of the wide-eyed, fuzzy-faced, yet diabolical Baa Baa.—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books...useful as a cautionary tale (it comes with a “Warning! Contains Mischief” label) to spark discussions about making foolish choices.—School Library Journal
