PRAISE FOR SHEEPOLOGY...
"Pigology, Chickenology, and Sheepology are my absolute favorite books about farm animals. They explain history and science with ease and charm. These books help us to see that reality transcends fiction, and that once we understand it, our sense of wonder deepens, making the world more enjoyable and more magical."
– Isabella Rossellini
"Sheepology is a revelation. For thousands of years, and to this day, humans around the world have depended on the many gifts of these often-underestimated animals, who are blessed with superior memories and excellent navigational skills. May this fun, fact-filled book foster the gratitude and respect that sheep deserve!"
