I actually didn't read it. The author visited the school I work at and read it. The illustrations and format reminded me of Moe Williams a bit, and so did the simple text. Despite those similarities, it is its own creation. I love picture books that feature animals talking and interacting with each other, even if the story involves... poop.

The story could easily inspire conversations about bullying, responsibility, and the complex gray area that exists between lying and deceiving.

So funny! Best read by a 3rd grade teacher, a la storytime.

I thought this book was funny. I can imagine young children getting lots of enjoyment from this book, in much the same way that Babette Coles books entertain.

It would be great to read along with younger children as it allows the child to repeat what you've just said while still following the words themselves and in turn learning how to read. I think all in all a success. though the pictures are not very bright but instead I would call beautiful drawing.

Seems a little bit like a hybrid between

I dunno. The base concept is a bit ick. Tricking Turkey into eating poo.

It's a clever story with a very novel plot but... it wasn't for us.

Who said sheep were dumb? This sheep is very clever, but not because he ate the smart pills. This is a picture book with simple text but uproariously funny. And because it contains the faecal matter element in the book, kids from 4 to 14 will love it.
This is definitely a Daddy favourite. Not sure if my daughters thoroughly get it, but they see my enjoyment and join in. Suffice to say Mum was not particularly impressed.

Awesome book for kids of all ages - myself included in this as my mother read it to me via Skype & had me giggling out loud. Great, quirky style of writing.
Literally as good as Mo Willems' books. And you KNOW how much that means!!! I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!
