Author(s): Mark Sommerset
Little Baa Baa is bored. When Quirky Turkey arrives on the scene, the opportunity to make some mischief proves too hard to resist. With snappy dialogue and hilarious illustrations, Baa Baa Smart Sheep is a laugh-out-loud story that will leave you thinking sheep aren't as stupid as we might think.
Baa Baa Smart Sheep by Mark Sommerset is a nominee for the NZ Post Children's Book Awards. Brilliantly subversive, funny and clever, kids will love the illustrations and adults will get the quirky subliminal message. This is a must for all salespeople, marketing majors and sheep lovers. - Lucy

Mark loves stories that make you laugh, think or dream. He spends a lot of time in his imagination and relishes the challenge of creating picture books for the enjoyment of kids and adults alike. Over the years Mark has worn many hats including milk boy, barman, singer/songwriter, music consultant and copywriter. These days, when he is not writing or playing with his son Linden, Mark is often busy running Dreamboat Books, an independent publishing business established with his wife and creative partner Rowan for the purpose of publishing their own work. Mark's fourth book, Baa Baa Smart Sheep, was a recipient of the NZ Post Children's Choice Award.
