Reviews for Sheep in a Jeep


Publishers Weekly Reviews 1986 July #4
``Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that's steep. . . . Sheep leap to push the jeep. . . . '' In her first picture book, Shaw demonstrates a promising capaci ty for creating nonsense rhymes. Her sweetly daffy story describes the ex ploits of five feckless sheep who end up selling their jeep (cheap, of course). Vet eran illustrator Apple's whimsical por traits of the sheep bring the story to life. The effect is pleasing and lighthearted, with much appeal for very young read ers.
