Book Review: The Warrior Sheep Go West by Christine & Christopher Russell

Title: The Warrior Sheep Go West
Author: Christine & Christopher Russell
Reading Level: Middle Grade
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky
ARC, 230 pages
Date Published: August 1, 2011
Description (Taken from Goodreads): 
In this follow-up book to the successful The Quest of the Warrior Sheep, the herd hoofs it to Las Vegas in another epic adventure. Last time they saved the Sheep God. This time they have to save all of sheepdom. A strange monster called Red Tongue has threatened all Rams, Ewes, and Lambs, and the Warrior Sheep know it's up to them to stop him. But they have a crazy scientist following them, and Tod and Gran have been thrown in jail by an over-zealous sheriff. Can the Warriors stop the mysterious monster?
Bleating sheep, big baddies, one mad scientist and his equally mad wife, and a prophecy are all part of what makes The Warrior Sheep Go West a ruckus of a good time. This is the second book about these rare, highly intelligent, and bad guy fighting sheep, but not having read the first book was no problem at all.

The reader is dropped right into the sheep’s English world and then quickly upended with them when they go to America. Right from there, the action and hilarious situations are non-stop. Middle grade readers will thoroughly enjoy how the five sheep just happen to be in very human situations: getting picked up in a convertible, taking a train to the Grand Canyon, hopping a bus to Vegas, and even 'relaxing' in a Vegas hotel.

The Warrior Sheep Go West is pure fun and the perfect book for readers who love a good time. Sal, Oxo, Jaycey, Wills, and Links will charm readers and animal lovers alike with their bold personalities and the ability to get into all kinds of trouble. I can only imagine that these warrior sheep have many adventures ahead of them and readers are going to love every single one of them.
