Overview

Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that’s steep.
Sheep in a Jeep is well-loved by the preschool and early-reader sets for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects—especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud! Nancy Shaw’s rollicking rhymes are Seuss-snappy, and Margot Apple’s appealing pencil illustrations are expressive and hilarious. Shear delight.
Don’t miss Shaw and Apple’s other sheep-heaped titles: Sheep in a Shop, Sheep on a Ship, Sheep Out to Eat, Sheep Trick or Treat, Sheep Blast Off, and Sheep Take a Hike.

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.)

The characters are zany, the rhymes are enchanting. Written in the same vein as the Dr. Suess easy-readers, this book, Sheep In A Jeep, would be a great addition to your home librsry. My sons really enjoy it.

I had not been exposed to the other books in the series, but I definitely believe Sheep In A Jeep is just darling and the rhymes make it so much fun. My son can just now read this on his own, an better yet, he wants to!!

The rhyming very entertaining and the illustrations vivid. It's not too long, not too short and we read it over and over. Will purchase others from this author and illustrator.

I bought this book after reading the online reviews. As cute as this book is, it is not on the same level as the classics.

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.

I purchased Sheep in a Jeep for my grand daughter for Christmas but as soon as it arrived I wanted to read it. These sheep are a mess! I laughed and laughed as their ride continued-or not. I showed my daughter who had the same reaction....be careful as you read this out loud because you will have serious difficultly getting to the end without laughing and crying at the same time! A great addition to any story time.
