Eduardo Guadardo may look fluffy. He may look cute. But he's no little lamb. He's about to graduate from the FBI--that's the Fairytale Bureau of Investigations--as an Elite Sheep. He knows five forms of kung fu, and he can outfox the foxiest of foxes. In fact, he's so good they put him on his own case: to keep the farmer's daughter, Mary, safe from Wolf, Troll, and Witch. It's a job for somebody baaaaaaad --someone like a soon-to-be Elite Sheep. The thing is, protecting Mary isn't quite as easy as Eduardo expected...

This imaginary backstory for "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is hilarious, action-packed, and filled with subterfuge (that means pulling the wool over your eyes, for you civilians).

This children's picture book ranges from full-page illustrations (with dialogue balloons) to cartoons and back again. All is done to underhandedly reveal the secret behind Mary and her lost lamb. While kindergarten and below may enjoy this story, it is best appreciated by those older, and precocious 2nd graders and above will love reading this. Note: there are many words above the 2nd and 3rd grade level, but reading with an adult to enlarge their vocabulary is a win-win. I found this book a "hoot" to read and it even snuck in a lesson at the end.

Eduardo Guadardo is graduating from the Fairy-Tale Bureau of Investigations (FBI). He is not Mary’s little lamb, but an Elite Sheep and he is getting his first assignment. His job is to protect Mary from the Witch, Wolf and Troll. The only problem with protecting Mary is that she is a bit active. She skis on the water, flies through the air, and even goes to school. Eduardo is having a hard time keeping up. Other agents ask if they can assist but he always says no. But when Mary wants to leave the school and the villains are close by Eduardo asks for help to keep her in the school and to keep her safe. Suddenly, a big reveal happens, and Eduardo finds out that keeping an eye on Mary was just a test. Do you think Eduardo passed? Will he become an Elite Sheep?

This fun spin from the song Mary Had A Little Lamb is quirky, silly and hilariously clever. Young readers will love the images of various animals resembling security agents around the premises and reading about the FBI jargon. Parents and teachers will get a kick out of this story and can use it to discuss fairy tales, sing the song and what they could do as an FBI agent.
