Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing

by Satoshi Kitamura

One Potato Review

Deadpan, hilarious. Three sheep – none too bright – go for a dip at the beach, but not before removing their coats on the suggestion of a pack of golfing wolves who, it turns out, run a knitwear black market in the city. There’s a detective (Elliott Baa, someone’s elk-horned relation) and rugby playing cats in the middle, although it’s finally not the noirish plot elements which will keep you going, but Kitamura’s (and the sheep’s) innate suggestibility. Here is a tale told for children by a very big child who also happens to be an enormously gifted comic artist.
