Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The stars of Boo and Baa in a Party Mood (whom PW called "an endearing pair of wide-eyed lambs") are back in Boo and Baa Have Company by Lena and Olof Landstrom, trans. by Joan Sandin. A stranded cat in a treetop inspires a comical adventure. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Michele Tremaine
This is the unpretentious and quietly silly story of Boo and Baa, two sheep, who, in time-honored picture-book fashion, attempt to solve a simple problem by creating more problems. Setting out to move a pile of leaves to a compost heap, they discover a cat in the tree under which they have raked the leaves. The cat behaves like any typically uncooperative feline. The two hopeful sheep first try to lure it with food. When that fails, they prop a board out their bedroom window onto the tree limb but, of course, the cat does not budge. At last, Boo gets a ladder and climbs the tree, and the cat runs over the board into the house. Boo is stranded in the tree and is hungry, so Baa makes sandwiches, which she sends to him via a basket and rope. Boo eats all the sandwiches and when Baa tries to rescue him with the rope and basket, they both land in the leaves. Tired, they go inside to get the cat, who promptly runs across the board into the tree. The sheep decide to leave the window open for the cat and go to bed. The story ends with the cat curled up on the floor beside their bunk beds, all three sound asleep. The simple, bright illustrations match the mood of this quirky tale of good intentions and slapstick miscues. The leaves, by the way, never make it to the compost heap.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Boo and Baa, two small sheep, are raking leaves when they discover a cat stuck up a tree. In their attempt to lure it down, Boo gets stuck instead. Ultimately he gets down, and the cat gets back up, so they leave it an escape route and go to bed. The final spread shows Boo and Baa in their beds, and the cat asleep on the carpet. The text, only a few lines per page, is so spare that it verges on being stilted, but it is this very restraint that imbues it with humor. The story is likely to tickle youngsters' funny bones. The Landstr ms use bold outlines to depict the two appealing little lambs with large eyes and very expressive faces. The illustrations vary in size and page layout, which adds both motion and visual appeal and enhances the minimalist text. While not an essential purchase, this enjoyable autumn tale will certainly find an audience with preschoolers and early readers alike.-Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Thank goodness: Swedish sheep Boo and Baa make their return to America after a six-year absence. This time they have yard work to do. They've raked the leaves, but they find that the wheelbarrow squeaks. After they oil it, it seems to meow. The smiling, wide-eyed duo discover a cat trapped in their tree. Sardines won't lure it down. They can't get it to cross a plank to the upstairs window. Boo attempts a rescue only to get stuck in the tree himself. When Baa tries to save him, they both end up flying through the air. Good thing that huge pile of leaves is there to break their fall. Preschoolers will love spotting the cat before Boo and Baa, and they'll laugh out loud at the slapstick rescue attempts. Bright watercolor illustrations and a sprightly translation, not to mention the full-sized format, make this perfect for story times. (Picture book. 3-7)
