Charlotte is a brave sheep who loves to be up high, but it makes the other sheep nervous. A group of sheep decide to prove how brave they are by pretending to be wolves and frightening the other sheep. But when the flock might be in danger, they are nowhere to be found. Can Charlotte help protect the flock?

Predictable but the illustrations are cute.

I didn't realize this is a sequel to "Brave Charlotte" until after I'd read it. I'm not sure if that took anything away from my enjoyment of the story. The illustrations are certainly cute and I always enjoy reading picture books from European authors since they are generally so hard to find over her in the States.

But, I am not really a fan of the story. It started off with a clever twist (hint: the wolves are not what you think they are!) and has a good anti-bullying message. But the "resoluti

A cute book about sheep. Charlotte lives with a herd of sheep and some of her peers call themselves wolves, a sheep gang, and cause trouble for the rest of the herd by being pesky and annoying.
When they hear wolf howls in the forest, the gang of 'wolves' are nowhere to be found. The next morning, Charlotte sets off to find the noise as a new howl is heard, different from the others. Creeping through the forest, she finds a stranded puppy on the top of a mountain, it's shrill howl what they heard

I didn't hate this book as much as other people did, because usually I am the one giving a low rating while everyone is gushing over it with 5 stars. It was a solid 2.5 for me but I rounded it to 3 as I don't have a half option.

So, what I learned from this book, is be your own sheep (or person) I am in a situation where something is really bad and everyone just ignores it and I am the only one willing to stand up and say something and follow through with my convictions. It takes courage to do t

Charlotte is different from the other sheep. She marched to the beat of her own drum and did not change because she was not like the others. She had great courage and had a adventurous side unlike the other sheep. Charlotte has to face off with the wolves and help Mimi, the dog who was afraid. Charlotte goes in the forest and speaks to the wolves, who were not a threat to the sheep or their community. Charlotte assures the community that the wolves are not trying to cause trouble and peace conti ...more

I loved the charming illustrations in this book but found the plot wanting. The story was a bit confusing and took some effort to follow; I'm not sure if this is the style of the story or the translation. I also dislike stories about bullies in which the heroine tricks the bullies. I find it unrealistic and not an effective model for children who are bullied. I haven't read the original, Brave Charlotte, but this is one that I will skip for the elementary school collection.

Charlotte the sheep is my new heroine. She's smart. She's funny. She's brave. And she's cute as a button. A group of young sheep have formed a group called "The Wolves" and Charlotte must stand up to them. But there's another menace that's threatening Charlotte's flock, and it's Brave Charlotte to the rescue! Good story about bravery and great illustrations, too.

Very cute story about Charlotte a sheep who is different than the other sheep. She is sometimes made fun of by another group of sheep who call themselves the Wolves and like to play tricks on the herd. One day brave Charlotte goes to save the herd from a wolf and in the process outsmarts the bully group.

I don't give a damn if the NY Times gave the predecessor to this a 'best illustrated' nod. The plot is asinine--my 10 year old writes much better stories! And if the awkward prose is due to poor translation, that still doesn't make it any better to read. Bleh!

The best thing about these Brave Charlotte books are the illustrations done by Henrike Wilson.

Charlotte is a credit to sheep everywhere. I loved the story to this darling picture book, and the illustration were very well done. I'd love to read this as a bed time story to my children some day.

Weird story. Okay artwork. But I've resolved to get my new niece just about any book with her name in it.

Writing was a little long for the format, but the Charlotte character--brave and no bulls***--is a good one. I'll definitely seek out the first book in the series.
