Shaun the Sheep

Shaun the Sheep - On The Ball
Tales From Mossy Bottom Farm Series
Martin Howard
Shaun and his other sheep friends invent a really fun game called Bitzerball. This game has a lot of rules. One of the main rules is that the rules can change at any time. They think it will be fun to have the pigs join them and then keep changing the rules. But things are really complicated even to the sheep and for a while it looks like the pigs will win the game. Shaun needs to find a way to complete the obstacle course and win the game against the pigs.

The book begins with a map of the farm to give the young readers a visual of the story taking place. It also includes a brief bio on some of the main characters. The font is large and the vocabulary is right on target for the age group. The book is the perfect size for small hands to hold. The illustrations help tell the story and had my children laughing throughout the book. Parents and teachers will enjoy this book that encourages and fosters reading; while children enjoy the amusing and illogical story about farm animals. The book ends with the first chapter of another book in the series to encourage further reading.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
