Book Reading Challenge : Book 12

“Baa Baa Smart Sheep”                                                                         

This is an hilarious picture book written by Mark Sommerset and illustrated by his wife Rowan.  I had the pleasure of meeting Mark when he was doing a book signing out at the Coatesville market on the Western outskirts of Auckland, one Sunday a few months ago.  While browsing through his books I noticed they were lyrical and he informed me he was also a songwriter, (no wonder). 

Bored Baa Baa decides to play a trick on Quirky Turkey and the poor bird falls for Baa Baa’s mischief.  Lord knows what is going to happen to Silly Billy……. or do we know already?

I am so pleased to be able to review one of their books, with its clean clear lines, soft colours and cute drawings it will certainly be any childs favourite.  I am also delighted to note that this one aged for 3 years and up, is a finalist in the NZ Post Children’s Book Awards for 2011.  Congratulations Mark and Rowan, their colourful website is attached to my blogroll here on this page.

    Boy your are on a roll! Another book in the competition. Sounds like a charming, lyrical ad silly book for young children. They love rhyming.

  2. ha, yes I am on a roll alright. This is a very cute book. They have others which are also just as delightful, and I am wishing them well for the awards.
