The comic strip adventures of a sheep and a rabbit who inhabit a block of flats overlooking Pickle Rye Park where they engage in a fruitless struggle to stop the moles from digging it up. Beginning with several single page stories, a longer tale builds in a series of episodes relating the friends’ efforts to get a ‘pop at fame’ on the ‘Barnyard Talent’ TV programme. The witty dialogue and cultural references give this book a sophistication beyond its apparent ‘verneer’.
