Blossom and Rocky are sheep-very sneaky sheep  . I bring up this whole megillah because Chris Monroe's book reminds me of those cartoons, only here it is the sheep (usually the victims)who take center stage while their sheepdog Murphy patiently tries to keep them in the field. Of course, he fails, and their mountain adventure is complete with a wolf and an embankment almost worthy of a Chuck Jones cartoon.

Monroe has written and illustrated eight children’s books, including the Monkey with a Tool Belt series. She has also illustrated four books for other authors. She has exhibited her oil pastel drawings and comics at the Duluth Art Institute, The Tweed Museum, Rifle Sport Gallery, WARM, Katherine Nash Gallery, Palazzo Scalfani, and other galleries, coffee shops, and dimly lit hallways.

Sneaky Sheep - Chris Monroe. In our house a preschooler who broke away and made a run for it was always a Runaway Bunny, even though I found that book kind of creepy. Actually, really creepy. This is a fine alternative. Adults will appreciate the elaborate metaphor of parents as watchful sheepdogs, keeping their charges out of harm, while the kids are sneaky sheep, getting into all kinds of danger and/or trouble. Kids will appreciate the subversion of the sheep. It's cute, it's fun, it's not heavy-handed at all. Probably all the little members of the family will be getting this next Christmas.

Blossom and Rocky are sheep-very sneaky sheep

Blossom and Rocky are sheep-very sneaky sheep. And they are not very good decision makers  . Blossom and Rocky are sheepvery sneaky sheep. Poor Murphy, the sheep dog, has rescued them from many adventures, like cliff diving and sunbathing on the railroad tracks. But Rocky and Blossom are always looking for greener grass, and there's no telling what they'll try next.

Monroe's comic-book background is evident. Rocky and Blossom are sheep who have a reputation for disobedience and mischief. These are rendered in dark, large type in a mixture of upper- and lower-case letters and placed above, below and in the middle of the illustrations without ever cluttering the page. They most certainly do not want to follow the flock; they want to explore a world wider than the low meadow. In the past they have run with the bulls, played with fire and been involved in a variety of other "bad decisions.

Blossom and Rocky, two sneaky and not very bright sheep, keep trying to get away from the rest of the flock, in spite of the dangers they encounter.

We first found this book at the library. It quickly became a favorite of my 2 1/2 year-old son, and, after renewing it multiple times, we soon bought a copy. The drawings are casual and enjoyable. The story centers on two sheep who want to sneak off to a different meadow, and the sheep dog who tries to keep them safe. The sheep have a history of "bad decisions," including running with the bulls, which are humorously presented in pictures. There is plenty of adult humor to keep a parent entertained while reading this to your child.

Took this book to my son's for Mother's Day and read it to my two grandsons - One in KG and the other one 3 years old.
I told the older one I wanted to read the book to both of them and then I wanted HIM to read it to ME.
He did! And he did marvelous. Great reader for not even 6 years old yet. Great purchase!

Just for the record, not only did my kindergarten class enjoy this book a lot, so has every adult who also managed to read it.

While preparing to go to the local sheep shearing festival with a group of friends, I pulled this book out and soon had a group of adults also laughing at the notion of a pair of sheep managed nicely by a sheepdog named Murphy. Rocky and Blossom are what every naughty person can clearly identify with--they don't see the dangers or understand the boundaries imposed. It was a delightful story that also helps spark discussions about "bad decisions." I will have to look into the other books by Chris Monroe.

My granddaughters get really excited about this book. They love it. It is really funny how the sheep want to explore, and sometimes get themselves into trouble. It's a great book. I don't think anyone would be sorry about getting this. It's really cute and a story with a lesson.

My daughter loves this book so much! I read it to her multiple times a day. She can pretty much recite the words herself.
