Andersen $11.95  ISBN 978-1-84270-907-8  28 pg.

When the sheep had finished their story, the detective was silent for a long time. “There are quite a few wolves in town,” he said at last. “Most of them are up to no good and play golf.”

Hubert, Georgina and Gogol are sheep. They want to go to the beach. When they get there, some troublesome wolves trick them out of their coats, and soon wolves and coats are gone. Elliot Baa, private detective must help them find their coats before it’s too late.

This was a funny book, but I wouldn’t say it was hilarious. As soon as you see certain things in the book, you can guess what happens next. I found it interesting the main characters were sheep, and that those sheep could drive. It was also a little random.

Satoshi Kitamura was born in Japan but now lives in London, England. He is a well-known author and illustrator of children’s books, and has written many other picture books such as Cat is Sleepy and Duck is Dirty.

This was an OK book. I give Sheep in Wolves’ Clothing 3 stars and recommend it for ages 5 and up.
