An unusual and amusing tale about the most unlikely pair of heroines a story ever did see, illustrated by the wonderful Quentin Blake.

Beatrice the ewe and Vanessa the nanny-goat have spent their whole lives chomping and nattering in the same field. One dull day they decide to go on holiday, only taking with them a stuffed wolf's head and some balloons, which both turn out to be very handy...


Quentin Blake's illustrations are, as you'd expect, perfect.

Ruth Ng, The Bookbag

Another finely reproduced Yeoman and Blake creation.

The School Librarian

A particular gem.
