A bit too wordy and scary for young children

This is the story of Bidibidi the sheep who grows tired of living in the barren mountains and decides to change her life for the better.

She follows a rainbow, facing many dangers and challenges along the way until she finds a place she belongs.

I'm not sure who this story will appeal to; the text is quite wordy and the illustrations, while impressive, not very colourful.

Also at times they're a bit scary, such as the ghost hotel and the silhouetted men enjoying a lamb roast. Ages: 4+.
