Eduardo Guadardo, Elite Sheep
by Anthony Pearson; illustrated by Jennifer E. Morris
In this imaginary backstory to “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” Eduardo Guadardo is a member of the FBI–Fairytale Bureau of Investigations–as an elite sheep. He knows five forms of Kung Fu, and he can outfox the foxiest of foxes. His job: to keep 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…

About the Author
Anthony Pearson is not a spy. He’s not. We promise. He’s actually a school counselor, a child therapist, and the author of Baby Bear Eats the Night, illustrated by Bonnie Leick. But that didn’t stop him from digging for clues about “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” What he found made him imagine what could have inspired the rhyme: a sheep that is totally, absolutely, 100 percent in control of things … or maybe just 95 percent. And squirrels in sunglasses. Oh, and a witch flying a helicopter. But you didn’t hear about the Fairytale Bureau of Investigations from him. Anthony and his family live in deep cover in Georgia.
