Ok first? This book is too cute! THE WARRIOR SHEEP GO WEST is a perfect title – the story is about a group of sheep (five, to be exact) who travel from the UK to the United States as warriors ready to defend all sheep-kind from the threat of Red Tongue.Although technically the second book in a series I found it not necessary to read the first book before this one (it’s a good idea, mind, but you won’t be lost if you don’t) in order to understand what’s going on. The two stories seem ve [...]
4.5 StarsThis book was so adorable! I really think kids are going to love this! You can tell the authors have experience writing for tv because the story is so fast paced, just like a tv show.All of the sheep have adorable personalities, but I have to say my favorite was Wills-the littlest and the smartest. He watched a lot of tv with his owner so knew about everything!I liked that the sheep weren't so personified that they did things like drive a car. The hitched a ride or just snuck onto a bus [...]
In (Very) Short:+ a great wild west adventure + loveable characters+ a naïve but kick ass, taking no prisoners granny+ the world perceived through the eyes of a sheepMy Opinion:The second installment of the Warrior Sheep series is as lovely as the first novel The Quest of the Warrior Sheep.The sheep start their adventure in Eppingham farm where they receive the message that Red Tongue is slaugthering rams. At the same time Ida and Tod are invited to a convention in American to exhibit their rar [...]
What a fun book to read! Technically the second book in a series but not having read book 1, I wasn't at all confused or out of the loop having only read book 2. We are first introduced to these wacky sheep in Quest of the Warrior Sheep but in the beginning of The Warrior Sheep go West, we are quickly filled in on the personality traits and little quirks that make Jaycey, Sal, Links, Wills and Oxo so entertaining to read.What I really liked about this book was how through a series of seemingly u [...]
Bleating sheep, big baddies, one mad scientist and his equally mad wife, and a prophecy are all part of what makes The Warrior Sheep Go West a ruckus of a good time. This is the second book about these rare, highly intelligent, and bad guy fighting sheep, but not having read the first book was no problem at all.The reader is dropped right into the sheep’s English world and then quickly upended with them when they go to America. Right from there, the action and hilarious situations are non-stop [...]
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 [...]
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.
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!
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
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.
I love this series (and I qualify as a senior citizen)! Fun situations, engaging characters, a giggle a minute.
Another cute sheepy story.
mildly confused bc I didn't read the first book it was still very funny!
Best book I ever read!
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.
Funny & cute!
funny, cute adventure--perfect for 1st and 2nd graders looking for a more challenging book that is also age-appropriate.
