Pete the Sheep is a 2004 picture book by Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley. It is about a shearer, Shaun, and his sheep, Pete, who open a hairdressing salon for sheep. Most of the fun in the ink-and-watercolor drawings comes from the expressions on the sheeps' faces-and, of course, their wild and wacky haircuts. Good for story hours.

I am mystified by the published reviews which reduce this wonderful story to an extended joke or "bit of fluff." Yes, there IS a joke which frames the story (sheep dog vs. sheep sheep). And the illustrations are charmingly simple and goofy, sure to delight readers young and old.

But the true brilliance of this book is the several deeply important lessons imbedded in the humor. 1) individuality in both activity and appearance is not only acceptable it's desirable; 2) it is more effective to be articulate and polite to achieve your goals than to use force; 3) forgiveness of our "enemies" can lead to friendship and great mutual benefit; 4) true leadership can come from unlikely sources.

I wish all the "bits of fluff" on my daughters book shelf were equally packed with positive messages, wrapped in enticing stories with funny illustrations! This is a story we will read again and again, to the delight of all ages.

I was also surprised that the recommended age ranges did not extend down to preschool. The short amount of text per page and humor make this accessible to 3 yr olds and attentive 2s.

Definitely worth adding to the permanent collection.

I love sheep. I didn't know this little book existed. I am so enamoured with the Wombat books, so much so, that they sent me hunting for more books by the illustrator Bruce Whatley, who drew the Wombats. This is how I came by Pete the Sheep. It made me laugh out loud, totally adorable. I could do with as many books by this combination of author and artist, as they can throw at me :-))). So I eagerly await any following books by Jackie French and illustrator Bruce Whatley. Keep churning guys !! Many thanks for the lift they give me. XXXX

This is a wonderful, quirky story with some great characters. Taking on the manly world of sheep-shearing, Pete and Shawn go about it, well, differently, to the delight of the sheep and the sheep dogs, but to the dismay of the rugged old-school shearers.

The drawings are perfectly matched to the story line, and kids absolutely love the expressions and the dialogue.

This children's book about differences is wonderful and heart warming, children (and adults) love the wonderful pictures and story about being different. I loved it and have given copies to many adult book lovers who just love good books.

Although there's some initial confusion, this is a very original and wonderfully zany story, cleverly disguising a subtle message that "being different" is not only ok--its sometimes superior!

The plot develops a bit too quickly, assuming a knowledge of sheep and sheep dogs not possessed by many kids and some adults. Beneath a fetching opener ("Ratso, Big Bob, and Bungo sheared sheep in Shaggy Gully"), the first spread shows introduces three sheep shearers (Ratso, Big Bob, and Bungo), three sheep dogs (Brute, Tiny, and Fang) and a herd of unnamed fluffy sheep. That's a lot of characters to comprehend at once; furthermore, some won't understand the job of "sheep shearer," and the illustrations is too crowded--you have to work a little to find the dogs among the sheep. That's surprising, because these watercolor and ink illustrations are otherwise uncluttered and clear. The rest of the story is silly/sophisticated humor that neatly shish-kabobs traditional notions about how men should act.

The new shearer on the block (Shaun), employs a sheep-sheep (Pete), instead of a sheep dog. You may need to point out Pete; he's the sheep with the natty hat. "Baa!" said Pete politely, which in sheep talk means, `Delighted to meet you gentlemen. Madam, please follow me, and Shaun will attend to you shortly." Predictably, the traditional sheep shearers protest:

"You can't have a sheep-sheep!" cried Big Bob.

"You need a proper sheep dog," yelled Ratso.

"Strewth," muttered Bungo, who never said much.

IN his thematic response, Shaun replies, "Pete's as good as any sheep dog...We just do things...differently." For starters, Shaun doesn't merely shear sheep, he COIFS them, giving them haute couture clips. Pete, for his part, is unfailingly polite and attentive to their customers, who love Shaun's work so much that they ignore the sheep dogs' herding. As in an old Western, the three men sense trouble, and kick out Pete and Shaun. Undaunted, Shaun gives Pete a new shaved look; the other sheep are so impressed that Pete has an idea, and so "Shaun's Sheep Salon" is born. A very funny series of sheep customers with nouveau wool- follows, and in the coup de grace, even the sheep dogs desert their owners for trims from Shaun! The last few pages complete the transformation, as the herders become professional-level stylists, and Pete's latest idea ("Baa Baaaa!") which means "Everyone can look gorgeous) opens the door to a veritable zoo of new animal clients. The renamed "Shaun's Animal Salon" now serves all animals, great and small, and the newly groomed animals include a panda with a checkerboard top, a rhino with a curly-cue tail, a giraffe with a row of tufted and tied hair running up his neck, and even three human animals--the traditional sheep herders, opening their minds and redesigning their hair. Somehow, Jackie French pulls the whole thing together; her originality doesn't get in the way of the basic goal of telling an entertaining and engaging story.

When my kids read this they had smiles on their faces from start to finish and laughed at the funny story and Bruce Whatley’s humorous illustrations. The characters’ Australian names and expressions are comical too.

There is a message in there for the kids: rather than do what everyone else is doing, have the courage to be yourself. You can be different and trust your individuality will appeal to others.

This is a fun read and delivers its message with wit and subtlety. As it is a Jackie French book, I didn’t expect anything less.

I loved this book! It has a fairly simple story line, and wonderful, light, airy, whimsical illustrations. The expressions are priceless. Best suited for children 4 and up. Super cute.
