Week 40 ~ Three Bags Full

Three Bags Full
Leonie Swann
(sheep mystery)

This is a very cute mystery story, with rather unusual detectives: the sheep belonging to the murdered shepherd. George Glenn has been killed, and his sheep determine to find out how, and then to bring the murderer to justice (even if they don't know what that means).

It's a different take on a murder mystery, and yet very enjoyable. I liked reading it, and the author has a good way of writing by using a different blend of senses than we are used to. Smell has a much higher priority than sight, and many of the common phrases you would expect to find in a book have been tweaked to be of the sheepy persuasion.
