Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This adventure lacks the comic fullness of the best of Shaw and Apple's work, said PW, but the light verse "is as snappy as ever" and the sheep's facial expressions remain "delightfully emotive." Ages 2-6. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Fans of Shaw's silly sheep will flock to this, their fifth woolly adventure. When Sheep Take a Hike, these intrepid explorers lose their way and wander through underbrush, fog, and a swamp. Cleverly, they keep their cool and follow the ``woolly fuzz they left behind'' to get back on the trail. Using her familiar short rhymes and rollicking rhythm, the author has written another surefire favorite for preschool story times and beginning readers. Apple's colored-pencil drawings add just the right balance between the seriousness, confusion, and humor the sheep experience. A rambunctious outing with riotous results.-Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
