" funny, cute adventure--perfect for 1st and 2nd graders looking for a more challenging book that is also age-appropriate. " said.

" Again, like with the first book, I am not sure who the audience for these books would be. I love the sheep puns, but I think they would go over the heads of the intended middle reader audience. " said.

" mildly confused bc I didn't read the first book it was still very funny! " said.

" This book was kind of fun, but there weren't great values or anything. The people are just plain stupid and the sheep aren't much smarter. Some of the writing was a bit tedious. The American characters use British expressions, which is a little weird. " said.

" Oh I wanted this to be better. The concept was cute. Crime fighting sheep from the UK get to Vegas.The writing falls short for me. I wanted more humor. I wanted the dialects to be accurate. It didn't happen.It felt disjointed, and I can't think of a reader I could I recommend it " said.

" I read this with my children and they laughed the whole way through!! The wooly adventures will make even the most jaded reader giggle. The coolest thing about this book was how real the characters felt when I was reading it to my little ones. I highly recommend this! " said.

" This is a cute fantasy in which a group of sheep go to Las Vegas to take on their enemy, "Red Tongue", but actually end up rescuing their owners. Middle-school students who like tongue-in-cheek humor and animals with human characteristics and abilites with like this one. " said.

" I think I didn't enjoy reading it to my girls. This is the second time I've read a book by a British author in which the author attempted to script the speech of a black man. The first was Traveller by Richard Adams, a story about Robert E. Lee's horse. I don't think the Mr. Adams was trying to express any racism (nor do I think Mr. Russell was) but the awkward prose he used to reproduce African American speech made Traveller (black people) sound quite ignorant and dim-witted. The same for Links, a black sheep. Yep. The black one. He sounded so "street" and stupid, compared to his white companions, that I translated his raps and comments into generic English so that my girls wouldn't start asking about him.
I don't mind hearing colloquial African-American dialect and speech mannerisms, but let it come from an author familiar in these and preferably, let it come from a black author or character.
" said.
