On a hillside near the cosy Irish village of Glennkill, a flock of sheep gather around their beloved shepherd George, who lies murdered, his body pinned to the pasture with a spade. Fortunately, George has left behind an unusually intelligent group of sheep. Every night since they were lambs, he has read aloud to them – fairy tales, factual books about ovine disease, even detective stories – in order to help them sleep. Faced with a real-life investigation, the flock spring into action.

What did you like best about Three Bags Full? What did you like least?

The story takes a while to get in to, and at first you wonder how on earth the sheep can discover enough clues, but it's done really well and I actually miss the sheep now it's finished!

Would you be willing to try another book from Leonie Swann? Why or why not?

I would definitely give a different Swann book a go- she writes with great voice and rhythm.
