Beep! Beep! Out for a drive in the country, Nancy Shaw and Margot Apple's now well-known and beloved sheep run into one mishap after another with their sturdy red jeep. Now in a big book format, this rhyming adventure is a "shear" delight to read aloud. Amazon.com Review "Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that's steep." This story, much like the jeep, gathers momentum from page one. When five foolish sheep cram into one jeep, their high spirits and occasional lack of foresight (like forgetting to steer) combine to make a riotous, if ill-fated, road trip. Plummeting over a hill, tumbling into a mud puddle, yelping for help, these muttonheads just can't get their act together, much to the delight of young readers. Nancy Shaw's Seussian rhymes are guaranteed to tickle every reader's funny bone, while providing a great little learning tool, as well. Who wouldn't want to learn how to read, after hearing lines like this: "Jeep goes splash! Jeep goes thud! Jeep goes deep in gooey mud!" Well-loved illustrator Margot Apple humorously captures the dopey expressions and preposterous predicaments of Shaw's sheep. More wild and woolly misadventures can be found in any of Shaw and Apple's other sheepish titles, including Sheep on a Ship and Sheep Take a Hike. (Ages 2 to 7) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly "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 capacity for creating nonsense rhymes. Her sweetly daffy story describes the exploits of five feckless sheep who sell their jeep (cheap, of course). Veteran illustrator Apple's whimsical portraits of the sheep bring the story to life. Pleasing and lighthearted, this has much appeal for young readers. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review "The bright-colored pencil drawings and lean text make this a great choice for preschool storytimes, as well as for beginning readers who want a funny story." School Library Journal
