Brenda Is a Sheep
Brenda is identified as a sheep but the illustrations in Morag Hood’s highly humorous picturebook reveal otherwise! She insinuates herself into sheep society and builds a bevy of ovine friends for whom she has culinary plans. Will she succeed or will she suck seed?
The spare text is integrated with illustrations that require readers to infer what is really going on. Morag Hood’s picturebooks combine a deceptive simplicity, wry humour and a distinctive use of a limited colour palette – in this case, orange, lime green and grey.
