That fun flock is raring for a rugged hiking adventure. Rapid rhythm, rhyme, and colorful illustrations make this a perfect introduction to poetry.
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 Shelburn Falls, Massachusetts, with her husband and their pets, a dog and a cat.
Nancy Shaw is the author of seven 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/.
This adventure lacks the comic fullness of the best of Shaw and Apple's work,
said PW, but the light verse "is as snappy as ever" and the sheep's facial
expressions remain "delightfully emotive." Ages 2-6. (Aug.)
"Fans of Shaw's silly sheep will flock to this . . . woolly adventure. . . . A rambunctious outing with riotous results." School Library Journal, Starred
