About the Author

Christopher Russell was a postman when he had his first radio play broadcast in 1975, having given up a job in the civil service to do shift work and have more daytime hours for writing. Since 1980, he has been a full-time television and radio script writer, and, more recently a children's novelist. His wife Christine has always been closely involved with his work, storylining and script editing, and has television credits of her own. The Quest of the Warrior Sheep was the first book they wrote together. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Emily WilowRaven from Red House Books on October 30, 2011
Format: Paperback
What a fun book to read! Technically the second book in a series but not having read book 1, I wasn't at all confused or out of the loop having only read book 2. We are first introduced to these wacky sheep in Quest of the Warrior Sheep but in the beginning of The Warrior Sheep go West, we are quickly filled in on the personality traits and little quirks that make Jaycey, Sal, Links, Wills and Oxo so entertaining to read.

What I really liked about this book was how through a series of seemingly unrelated events these loveable sheep and their clueless human owners, travel thousands of miles together, thwart the evil plans of a mad scientist (or two) save the day and wind up back in the comfort of their English countryside - all without even realizing they were working together the whole time.

A quick read that I really think young readers would enjoy. Fun and lighthearted with a bit of mystery and suspense, The Warrior Sheep Go West is a book I would not hesitate to recommend to middle grade readers.

Although I didn't need to have read book 1 in order to read book 2, I think I'll buy myself a copy anyway to add to my home library. I can really see my daughter enjoying these stories in years to come.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) on September 8, 2011
Format: Paperback
Bleating sheep, big baddies, one mad scientist and his equally mad wife, and a prophecy are all part of what makes The Warrior Sheep Go West a ruckus of a good time. This is the second book about these rare, highly intelligent, and bad guy fighting sheep, but not having read the first book was no problem at all.

The reader is dropped right into the sheep's English world and then quickly upended with them when they go to America. Right from there, the action and hilarious situations are non-stop. Middle grade readers will thoroughly enjoy how the five sheep just happen to be in very human situations: getting picked up in a convertible, taking a train to the Grand Canyon, hopping a bus to Vegas, and even 'relaxing' in a Vegas hotel.

The Warrior Sheep Go West is pure fun and the perfect book for readers who love a good time. Sal, Oxo, Jaycey, Wills, and Links will charm readers and animal lovers alike with their bold personalities and the ability to get into all kinds of trouble. I can only imagine that these warrior sheep have many adventures ahead of them and readers are going to love every single one of them.

Although I personally haven't read this book, my 10 year old son has, and considers it on his list of top 10 favorites. My son sat on the couch giggling out loud several times, and read the book in one long two hour sitting. And he wanted to share with me all the hilarious parts. As a mom, you can't help but give a book like that 5 stars.

Caveat: this is the second book in a series, be sure to look into the first one!

I normally love reading to my daughter, but this book was not a labor of love. The sheep were so annoying, I found myself rooting for the bad guys. And for the love of all that is holy, why did the author think he had to be hip and make one of the sheep (the black sheep of course) a rapper?
