“Absolute entertainment from cover to cover, bursting with brilliant illustrations and a beautifully crafted story. This tale of how a bashful ram finds his place in the world will not only delight readers of all ages, but is also a wonderful lesson for youngsters who are less than confident themselves.” Susan Ramsay, Editor Young Post and Posties
“Why is a city in South China known as the City of Rams? How did rice become one of the most important foods in the world? You can turn to a history book or the Internet to find out. Or you can have a lot more fun reading how Rodney the Ram saves the villagers of Guangzhou! Sarah Brennan and Harry Harrison are back – better than ever!” John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong
