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.
