A duped—and grossed-out—Quirky Turkey is aiming for payback, but does he have what it takes to pull the wool over Baa Baa’s eyes?
After getting tricked by Little Baa Baa into eating "smarty tablets," Quirky Turkey wants revenge. What if he uses Baa Baa’s own tactics against him by exchanging a few pleasantries before tempting his friend with a fresh, delicious glass of “lemonade”? Turns out gullibility isn’t so easy to quench in an outrageous follow-up to Baa Baa Smart Sheep that will have kids laughing so hard, they may just lemonade themselves.
About the Author
Mark Sommerset is a writer and part-time sheep interpreter. Rowan Sommerset grew up with lots of pets. Together, Mark and Rowan Sommerset create picture books from their home on Waiheke Island, New Zealand, where they live with their son, Linden.
The Sommersets offer another tale of mischief told mostly in dialogue bubbles that is sure to make parents groan and …um…wee ones double over with laughter. Both the earth-toned, cartoon critters on slightly paler earth-toned solid backgrounds and precise sense of comedic pacing again bring Willems to mind. Guaranteed hysterics for readers with strong stomachs.
The goofy farm animals are drawn with a certain Boynton-esque charm...many young audiences will roar with laughter at the scatological humor.

The Sommersets have a rare gift for making flowers of wit grow out of manure (or, in this case, pee), and youngsters who appreciate indelicacy will embrace Little Baa Baa and Quirky Turkey as Elephant and Piggie’s crude cousins.
