"Swann's light touch keeps cuteness at bay, and the whimsical conceit is nicely sharpened by literary allusions and running theologial jokes."
"Moments of high comedy come thick and fast ...this entertaining, light-hearted mystery is told from a refreshingly novel perspective."
"If you like a good murder mystery ... then you'll love this original and fun philosophical tale."
"Touching...as if Agatha Christie had rewritten The Wind in the Willows. I ended by loving it."
"Refreshingly, joyously different ... a witty, perceptive tale."
A detective story with a difference - the detectives are all crime-busting sheep ...Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Every sheep has his own character and that makes the book so special.
In a funny way the whole flock try to find out how their beloved shepherd was murdered.
A smart warm-hearted story with a sense of humour in the sheep's behaviour.
If you normally don't like crime story, this book will definitely change your mind.
I would give this book five out of five hooves!
Nice thoughtful book, showing life from a totally different perspective.
Won't ever look at a sheep again without thinking!
The murder itself is creative - how often do you encounter a dead shepard with a spade in his belly in crime fiction? The novel point of view of the narrative, however, (i.e. sheep,) demands an increasingly ridiculous and laborious tour-de-force on the side of the author: She needs to send her sheep all over the place to listen and observe through windows and over walls what the human beings are up to - and after a while, this just gets absurd. The last quarter of the novel turns into a major catastrophe of fiction, when the sheep stage a reenactment of their shepard's death at the local pub which, ludicrously enough, leads to a totally unexpected and utterly implausible solution of the murder. WHAT A LET-DOWN!! WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!!
The young author just does not yet possess the writing skills sufficient for a full-blown novelist; e.g. she does not manage to give her human and animal protagonists individual voices. Each sheep speaks like each other sheep, each human being speaks like a sheep, and men and women and the old and the young, they all have the same one voice. The uniformity of the direct speech makes dialogues boring and monotonous, and the novel appears increasingly shallow.
Neat little idea, but the limited writing skills of Leonie Swann just don't get the show on the road. 1 star.
