'The Seventh Sheep' is a collection of 4 short stories that although pretty different combine together to create a total that is more than the sum of its parts. Some of the stories are whimsical, surreal and even with a touch of the absurd, but they all have a heart and like fables, have a lesson to teach us. I’m sure we all have met people like the main character in ‘the Master of the Universe’ and the attitude of the piano in the final story will be easily identifiable (that is if there is not a touch of self-recognition). I was delighted, surprised, touched and amused in equal measures but these very short stories and I will never think about counting sheep to go to sleep in the same way again. If you want a good read that will warm your heart cockles and put a smile on your face, don’t think twice and buy 'The Seventh Sheep'.
I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
