for Pete the Sheep-Sheep by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley
Shaun the new shearer has a sheep named Pete as a substitute for a sheep dog. The other shearers will not accept Shaun unless he gets a proper sheep dog. Without jobs Shaun and Pete open a Sheep Salon. It is so popular that the other shearers eventually join the salon as all their sheep and their dogs go to Shaun’s for their trims. pwc

Shaun is the new sheep shearer in Shaggy Gully. Since shearing is such hard work, all the other shearers have sheep dogs to help them. But not Shaun. His partner is Pete . . . a sheep- sheep!
Pete has a polite way of rounding up his charges, and Shaun is an expert shearer. The sheep are thrilled with this unconventional new team, but the other shearers--Ratso, Big Bob, and Bungo--are not. Luckily, Pete has a few ideas under his hat that are sure to please everyone.
Bruce Whatley's spirited illustrations bring to life Jackie French's zany characters in this hilarious tribute to individuality and the working sheep.
