Another memorably silly adventure from the quirky imagination of comics artist Chris Monroe.Blossom and Rocky are sheep-very sneaky sheep. They are not very smart sheep, as readers will see from past evidence of their poor decision making (first there were the poker games, the skateboard ramp, then the knitters ... ). Murphy, the sheep dog, knows to keep an eye on this pair, but they still manage to sneak off and get into trouble.

Frog and Toad’s Laws of Literary Motion

In my years selecting children’s books for the library, I have often envied the mathematical certainty of the hard sciences.  After all, when the Pythagorean theorem doesn’t work, it’s usually our own bad arithmetic at fault, and Plank’s Constant isn’t exactly wishy-washy.  It’s a little more difficult to make sense of children’s literature sometimes.  Perhaps this arises from the fact that its...

Blossom and Rocky’s desires are primarily controlled by their stomachs. So too, for that matter, are the desires of small children. This is a desire that kids understand. That said, these sneaky sheep really find their true predecessors in all the unapologetically “bad” kids and animals that have ever graced the pages of children’s literature. From David to Brer Rabbit to any trickster you can name, their hijinks will always continue to ensue and entertain. Here’s to more Sneaky Sheep books then. Something tells me that their days of making foolish choices are far from over.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 05, 2013

Rocky and Blossom are not good sheep. They don’t make good decisions. Living, as they do, in a low meadow with 147 other sheep and a sheepdog named Murphy, Rocky and Blossom yearn to gain access to a different meadow. High above on another mountain they can see a meadow of superior charms. One that undoubtedly has supremely succulent clover. Unfortunately for them, Murphy is no fool. The minute they try to escape he’s on their tails, taking them back. One day, however, the sheep get the drop on their guardian. Everything seems to be going fine too, until a hungry wolf takes note of their vulnerability. To their great relief, Murphy comes to their aid and they’ve all learned an important lesson . . . . for a while.

“Murphy knew a few things about Rocky and Blossom. They had been known to make some bad decisions over the years.”
