“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).
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.
