Summary
  • The sheep on the hillside were munching away, Much as they always did, day after day, When suddenly something went zoom! overhead. "Let's go and see what it is!" they all said. And so begins a ripping, round-the-world adventure as the sheep take to skies in a magnificent yellow flying machine...
  • "A total pleasure" Independent on Sunday "Bently's award-winning chaotic humour is perfectly matched by David Roberts' eccentric and beautifully detailed illustrations" Daily Mail "Illustrator David Roberts blends caricature and an elegant style to suit both the silliness and the 1920s setting" Sunday Times "I love this author/illustrator pairing ... Stylish and funny with a fantastic read-aloud text" Children's Previews, The Bookseller "David Roberts' illustrations are sublime" -- Amanda Craig New Statesman
