Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The bright-colored pencil drawings and lean text make this a great choice for preschool storytimes, as well as for beginning readers who want a funny story." School Library Journal
Barnes & Noble Staff
Using very few words (sheep, jeep, thud, mud, heap, cheap), a tableau unfolds in which five silly yet distinctive sheep futilely attempt to ride in their jeep. Amusing details-such as the tattoos on the pigs' arms-abound in the pictures. Apple's expressive illustrations and Shaw's minimal text make this an extremely clever read-aloud.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep/on a hill that's/steep./Uh-oh!/The jeep won't go,'' is a fragment of Shaw's jaunty verse, heartily dramatized by Apple's colored drawings. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)

This is a delightful book. It is great fun to read aloud and children can learn a lesson or two from this brief adventure. The illustrations are amusing and well-drawn. I not only recommend this book but I give it often to the younger members of my family.
