What Do Critics Say About Sheep in a Jeep

  • “‘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.”

  • Starred Review

    “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.”
