Warrior Sheep Go West by Christopher Russell
The warrior sheep are just five regular sheep living on a farm in England. When they think they have received a threatening message from Red Tongue they believe it is up to them to save all of sheepdom from the monster. Before you know it they have managed to get themselves on a flight to the American west where they hope to find Red Tongue and defeat him. The warrior sheep are silly, to be sure, but actually not as silly as I had hoped. I thought this book would be a lol-riot but it was more odd and contrived. Of course it was contrived - it's a book about sheep saving the world - but even the silliness didn't flow for me. And the rapper sheep really left me cold.
