My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Summary from goodreads.com:
Tuftella-the fairest ewe maiden of them all-is in danger! Locked away in a tall, tall tower surrounded by a moat full of monsters, she waits to be rescued by a knight in shining fleece. Warrior Sheep to the rescue!
And so the Warrior Sheep head Down Under
Off on an all-new quest, the Warrior Sheep must sail to a faraway land on a boat called Destiny, with only a very crooked fairy godmother to guide them.
Another great installment of the Warrior Sheep series! This series is so fun, I found myself laughing so many times throughout the book. The characters are just so lovable, especially little Wills! He is just too cute, he has the most interesting observations about the human world based on watching tv with his human.
The mystery comes together nicely and there were a good amount of surprises along the way. I love the way the sheep travel, they are pretty crafty! The pacing is great, it's very similar to a children's tv show, which makes sense because the authors work in television.
I'm still partial to "The Warrior Sheep Go West", but I think that's because I really enjoyed the Las Vegas setting. Possibly, it's also because it was my first foray into the Warrior Sheep world and I was so surprised at all the unexpected laughs.
Main Characters: 5/5
Supporting Characters: 5/5
Bottom Line: I'd recommend this series to any of the young readers I know, it's laugh out loud funny with great, lovable characters.
