Publisher Comments:

Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill thats steep.
Sheep in a Jeep is well loved by the preschool and early-reader sets for its slapstick story of five sheep (in a jeep) and silly sound effects—especially when the jeep goes splash and thud in the mud! Nancy Shaws rollicking rhymes are Seuss-snappy, and Margot Apples appealing pencil illustrations are expressive and hilarious. This 2010 board book edition, just right for small hands, includes a “Make Your Own Sheep” activity! (Think cotton balls.) Shear delight.
Dont miss Shaw and Apples other sheep-heaped titles in board book form: Sheep in a Shop, Sheep on a Ship, Sheep Out to Eat, Sheep Trick or Treat, and the lap-size board book edition of Sheep in a Jeep!

Synopsis:

What could be better than a misadventure in board book format from that rambunctious flock of sheep? In "Sheep in a Jeep", the hapless flock goes for a drive in the country. Full color.

Unfortunately, these sheep donand#8217;t know the first thing about piloting a spaceship . . . but there may be someone else on board who does! Readers will have a blast with Nancy Shawand#8217;s clever rhymes and Margot Appleand#8217;s hilarious illustrations in this latest Sheep adventure.

Synopsis:

What will happen when the sheep go trick-or-treating? Could there be wolves lurking in the woods, hoping to waylay them as they return home with their bags full of goodies? In crisp verse and whimsically eerie pictures, Nancy Shaw and Margot Apple tell the lively story of a remarkable Halloween adventure. Simple sentences, rhyming text, and a humorous tone make this the perfect treat for beginning readers. Fans of this adventuresome flock of sheep will not want to miss this Halloween treat.
