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.)

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.
