Pete the Sheep [Paperback] by Jackie French
Illustrated by Bruce Whatley
*CBCA Notable Australian Children's Book
The award-winning team behind Diary of a Wombat have joined forces again to create another highly amusing picture book.
Sean is a shearer and instead of a sheepdog to help him, he's got a sheep sheep - Pete. After being rejected by the other shearers and their dogs, Sean and Pete set up a sheep salon in town. Sheep from everywhere arrive to have their wool shorn in the latest style and even the shearers dogs end up arriving for a cut in order to look gorgeous.
Jackie and Bruce have created the perfect combination of words and illustrations in this irreverent look at the world of sheep shearing.
Find out how one wombat - between scratching, sleeping and eating - manages to fit the difficult job of training humans into her busy schedule.
