A Lamb Called Lucky


It’s the Easter holidays and Jasmine has her hands full with sheepdog training. She’s helping out with lambing too, especially while Mum and Dad are busy with the TB checks. When she and best friend Tom discover an abandoned pair of baby birds, they take on the half hour feeding responsibility, but there are further demands on their carer time to come. Meanwhile, the news about sheep rustling further south of the country is rife; that won’t affect the family, surely?

A Lamb Called Lucky‘ is as steeped in reality, truth and interest as its predecessors. Bookwagon loves Jasmine’s character, the family unit, and the reality in the setting of a working family farm. This is a superb series for readers who have moved onto gripping stories. We recommend ‘A Lamb Called Lucky’ and the other Jasmine Green books, beginning with A Piglet Called Truffle for readers aged from 7 or 8 or 9 years.


A Lamb Called Lucky

A Jasmine Green story

(Nosy Crow)

It’s lambing time, Jasmine’s favourite time of the year. She’s busy helping Dad with the lambs, alongside taking on care of two abandoned baby birds. There’s stories of sheep rustling many miles away, but it’s of little concern to Jasmine’s family, isn’t it? This true-to-life, farming centred story is superb. The Jasmine Green series is one of our top picks for readers who have picked up the reading habit and need a worthwhile, really readable series to move on with.
