Brian the Brave

Paul Stewart, illus by Jane Porter

Otter-Barry Books

Brian is ganged up on by the other sheep for looking different but when a hungry wolf arrives, the sheep must put
aside their prejudices and act together to win the day.

“I only like sheep with black wool,” said Stanley. “White wool is rubbish. I am just going to play with Rose.”

Sheep are not all the same – some are white, some are black, some have horns, some don't. Brian doesn't mind about such things, but he finds that there are other sheep who do, and they won't all play together.

When the other sheep gang up on Brian because he has blue eyes instead of brown, Brian is very sad and goes off on his own. But everything changes when he meets a hungry wolf…

Led by brave Brian, the sheep find that when they all act together, even a wolf can be made to run away.
