A strange and wonderful story about a flock of sheep trying to solve the murder of their shepherd. This book is different from the loads of other animal-detective books crowding bookstore shelves and remainder bins. I really enjoyed Three Bags Full because it goes much deeper with the hoofed-detective premise than you might expect. Rather than being gimmicky, this fanciful book is a tender and thoughtful look into the construction of knowledge. It's fun to watch the sheep go about trying to sniff out clues, and to realize that who (and what) we are affects what (and how) we know.
