What could be better than a misadventure from that rambunctious flock of sheep in board-book form? Two! Now sized perfectly for even the smallest hands, two of Nancy Shaw and Margot Apple's enchanting titles from their sheep series are board books. In Sheep in a Shop, the sheep are off to the store in search of the perfect birthday gift. With these muttonheads, a normal outing is sure to turn into a joyous lark. Rhyming text and disarming illustrations make these shear delights!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 --The creators of Sheep in a Jeep (1988) and Sheep on a Ship (1989, both Houghton) have produced yet another shear delight. Piggy bank in tow, the fleecy five take a country store by storm in search of a birthday gift for one of their friends. They hit upon just the thing, but find themselves a little short on cash. Luckily they're not short on ingenuity and make a real deal. The simple, yet thoroughly satisfying, story is suitable for young toddlers through emerging readers. The crisp, rhyming sentences that tell the tale with economy and humor are enormously enhanced by Apple's wonderfully detailed colored pencil drawings. There's nothing sheepish about these lambs; they're energetic, expressive, and completely disarming. A rambunctious romp; let's hope there are more in store.-- Luann Toth, School Library Journal
