Those Magnificent Sheep in their Flying Machine

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.

Inspired by the famous 1965 film and magnificently illustrated by David Roberts, Those Magnificent Sheep in their Flying Machine is a rip-roaring, round-the-world adventure. Join Lambert, Eunice, Old Uncle Ramsbottom and the rest of the flock as they take to skies for an unexpected ride in a splendid yellow aeroplane…

Selected as one of the titles for The Reading Agency (UK) 2015 Summer Reading Challenge.

Shortlisted for the Bishops Stortford Picture Book Award 2015.
