Out for a drive in the country, Nancy Shaw and Margot Apple’s well-known and beloved sheep run into some mishaps with their sturdy red jeep.
I love this book! It has long been a favorite at our house. With Margo Apple’s delightful illustrations and Nancy Shaw’s spare and comedic text, this book will have everyone laughing at the five foolish sheep adventuring in the story. And this is just the beginning; look for additional related titles: Sheep in a Shop, and Sheep out to Eat.
Nancy Shaw is the author of eight beloved tales featuring the endearing and comical sheep. She came up with the idea for the sheep books during a very long car trip with her husband and two children. She lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her family. For more information, visit http://www.nancyshawbooks.com/.
Margot Apple is a freelance illustrator, having illustrated more than fifty books for children while also producing illustrations for “Cricket” and “Ladybug” magazines. She now lives in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, with her husband and their pets, a dog and a cat.

“‘Beep! Beep!/Sheep in a jeep.’ Somebody certainly should sound the horn, because a rollicking, rhyming, delightfully illustrated book has turned up…Sheep in a Jeep is great fun for the beginning reader–and, in fact, for just about anyone.”
“There’s a lot of character to the silly sheep in this silly tale that is simple enough to be manageable for children just beginning to read…A highly agreeable farce.”
“The bright colored pencil drawings and lean text make this a great choice for pre-school story-times, as well as for beginning readers who want a funny story.”
