Kids who love wicked humour will gobble up this tale of a trickster sheep and a comically gullible turkey. Ewww Little Baa Baa is bored. So when Quirky Turkey comes along, the opportunity to make mischief is too good to resist. "What's that?" asks Turkey, pointing at a suspicious something on the ground. "What's what?" "That there."
