    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 very separate from one another but the authors provide some nice looks back to the first book in order to help the reader understand a bit about why the sheep see themselves as Warrior Sheep The five sheep follow the Songs of the Fleece bible for sheep and when the warning from Red Tongue corresponds with a verse in the Songs, the sheep take notice and head right out.Mind you, there are a great number of coincidences and sub plots that help the sheep on their journey to defeating Red Tongue from destroying all sheep kind, but that s the fun of the story Ida White and her grandson Tod are lured to America for their five rare breed sheep our warriors and as soon as the plane touches down the crazy adventure begins Our five sheep Sal, Oxo, WIlls, Jaycey and Links are chased to Las Vegas and back by the shifty Holly Boomberg and her scientist husband, though they are oblivious to much of the danger Which obviously leads to much of the humour As the story unfolds we re clued in to what and who Red Tongue exactly is, but are left in the dark as to why Holly Boomberg and her husband need the sheep The mystery is revealed at the end amidst much hilarity, and the coincidences continue to a satisfying end I think younger readers will fall in love with the five sheep especially rhyming and rapping Links and be pulled right into their adventure trying to stop Red Tongue and save the Rams and sheep kind Humourous, straight forward writing will keep a young readers attention and the characterizations will help them connect and identify with the sheep, Ida White, Tod and even Holly Boomberg All five sheep have such distinct personalities it s easy to keep them all straight THE WARRIOR SHEEP GO WEST is a wild romp of a middle grade that even older readers will enjoy Originally posted at Escape Through the Pages with the same rating.

    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 They only talked to each other, humans couldn t understand them And the villain, Red Tongue, has a perfectly rational and funny explanation.There was another villain besides Red Tongue, and sometimes her storyline got a little slow But I never care much for the villain s point of view, so it might not bother others like it bothered me.I think the book will appeal equally to boys and girls because there are great characters of both genders represented.I would recommend giving this fun filled adventure to any elementary schoolers in your life, and I think you will overhear lots of laughter as they read it sent by publisher in exchange for honest reviewreviewed for

    In Very Short a great wild west adventure loveable characters a na ve 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 rare breeds Little do they know that this organization is phony The people behind this organization have a sinister plan But the rare breeds are on their own quest and unaware of the danger.Again the sheep dive head first into the quest believing that every coincidence is meant to be and a sign from Aries the god of all rams In their na ve and loveable way they find their own adventure and a way to save all sheepdom.Although I was occasionally annoyed by the sheep in the first book, I thoroughly enjoyed them this time Still, my favorite character is grandma Ida She just loves live and takes things as they come without over thinking them Maybe I should take a page out if her book All in all, it is a beautiful, sweet and sheeply adventure.Bottom Line A funny wild west quest with Ida, Tod and the Eppingham rare breeds for the young and those remaining young at heart.

    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 unrelated events these loveable sheep and their clueless human owners, travel thousands of miles together, thwart the evil plans of a mad scientist or two save the day and wind up back in the comfort of their English countryside all without even realizing they were working together the whole time.A quick read that I really think young readers would enjoy Fun and lighthearted with a bit of mystery and suspense, The Warrior Sheep Go West is a book I would not hesitate to recommend to middle grade readers.Although I didn t need to have read book 1 in order to read book 2, I think I ll buy myself a copy anyway to add to my home library I can really see my daughter enjoying these stories in years to come.

    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 Middle grade readers will thoroughly enjoy how the five sheep just happen to be in very human situations getting picked up in a convertible, taking a train to the Grand Canyon, hopping a bus to Vegas, and even relaxing in a Vegas hotel.The Warrior Sheep Go West is pure fun and the perfect book for readers who love a good time Sal, Oxo, Jaycey, Wills, and Links will charm readers and animal lovers alike with their bold personalities and the ability to get into all kinds of trouble I can only imagine that these warrior sheep have many adventures ahead of them and readers are going to love every single one of them.

    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.

    My second reading of this 2 4 volume from the Warrior Sheep series, though a children s book, it was a nice break from my usual genre cozy mystery This one seemed a bit heavy on describing scenes at times, which got boring made reading difficult, but just press on, it doesn t stay that way Looking forward to the next 2, a good story overall.

  9. Nancy H says:

    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
