Amazon DescriptionBlossom and Rocky are sheep--very sneaky sheep. And they are not very good decision makers. Poor Murphy, the sheep dog, has rescued them from many adventures, like cliff diving and sunbathing on the railroad tracks. And then there was the unfortunate incident with the knitters....But Rocky and Blossom are always looking for greener grass, and there's no telling what they'll try next.
One Potato Review
A worthy follow-up to this author’s sneakily brilliant Monkey with a Tool Belt series. Here the main characters are a couple of self-destructive livestock (in contrast with the heroically self-sufficient Chico Bon Bon) and a purposeful herder named Murphy. You’re kind of rooting for the sheep to reach that higher, forbidden pasture, but they cannot seem to help themselves - gambling with hounds, skateboarding without helmets, sunbathing on train tracks - and in the end this reads like an argument for the wisdom of natural selection. Also featuring avalanches, old ladies rampaging with knitting needles, and even the odd tourist wearing a vaguely recognizable monkey T-shirt.
