Read full description of the books A Sheep Called Skye:"Have you ever seen a sheep with an umbrella? I made one once out of a huge leaf. It worked for a bit but then the rain began coming through and it started getting soggy. I felt very silly standing there with an umbrella full of holes."
Skye is used to being different. She never knew her mother and was brought up on a Bed and Breakfast. But she longs to discover the place where someone like her, a sheep who doesn’t feel like a sheep, belongs. So she turns herself into a tourist attraction, selling scarves and tea-towels in windy car parks. Her ambition is to become a souvenir and live on a mantelpiece. Until she discovers a secret that changes everything...
Internationally acclaimed, this funny and original story is as much for adults as for children. Indeed for anyone with an ear for the bleat of a special sheep and an eye for the beauty of the island that bears her name.
Read information about the authorI started writing the books in the A Sheep called Skye series 10 years ago after spending a lot of time with sheep on the Isle of Skye. My books are fables – stories about the animal world which relate to the human world. Children can enjoy them simply as a story, or adults can read between the lines and discover another way of looking at the world.
I live part of the year on the Isle of Skye and spend the rest of my time in Brussels as my husband is Flemish. Some of my books have been translated into Dutch and are published by a Belgian publisher: I have written a book about ducks who can’t fly (Vlieglessen van een Vlegel), boys who find cocoa beans in vending machines (Het Mysterie van de Bienoboon ) and a girl who discovers she is special (The Godmother). These books have been the subject of numerous educational projects, both in Belgium and the UK , and I organise writing and poetry workshops and teach English to refugees.
My short stories have been shortlisted for the Asham, Ian St James and Bridport prize and are published in Wild Cards, the 1999 Virago anthology of writing women and Making Changes, an anthology published by Bridge House in 2008. I am now writing an adult novel which has something to do with … cows!
