The Tale of Rodney Ram

Author(s): Sarah Brennan

Picture Books

Rodney Ram is gorgeous, from his ear-tips to his toes. But there's just one problem - he doesn't want to lead his flock! Then famine grips Guangdong Province, and the sheep are in mortal danger. Will Rodney rise to the challenge, and save their woolly hides? Find out in this shaggy tale of shyness, sheep and an awful lot of luck! Another funny and fabulous Chinese Calendar Tale due out just in time for the Year of the Ram (2015)! "Sarah Brennan's work is a meeting between traditional Asian narratives and the universal taste of children for graphic stories. The tale-telling gifts shown in these books, along with the exuberance of the language and rhymes, make them unique in children's literature". Tom Keneally, author of Schindler's Ark and Ned Kelly and the City of Bees "Why is a city in South China known as the City of Rams? How did rice become one of the most important foods in the world? You can turn to a history book or the Internet to find out. Or you can have a lot more fun reading how Rodney the Ram saves the villagers of Guangzhou! Sarah Brennan and Harry Harrison are back - better than ever! John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong
