    I never thought I would find myself commenting in a book review about how realistic the sheep characters seemed to be But in Leonie Swann s delightful murder mystery, I repeatedly found myself thinking Yes I bet that s exactly what a sheep would think While these crime fighting sheep are smart and understand English, they are still just so sheepy that I had no tro

    It s a cute premise a dead shepherd is discovered by his flock of sheep with a spade sticking out of his chest, and the sheep then set out to solve the mystery of the shepherd s murder Fine I have no problem with cute.The problem with this book is that it s just not a very good mystery, despite the billing The clues are often garbled in translation from human to sheep

    Sheep, it turns out, have quite a bit in common with humans We are both gossipy, superstitious, and prone to exaggeration Like us, sheep have theories about life after death you become a fluffy, cloud sheep in the sky , and prejudices goats are crazy And occasionally, someone will offer up sane words of advice that both sheep and humans would do well to heedYou shouldn t believe what you don t
