Praise For Sheep Blast Off! (Sheep in a Jeep)…
School Library Journal
"The colored-pencil illustrations are as fun and kid-friendly as usual; fans will welcome seeing familiar friends in an unfamiliar setting." August 2008 Booklist, ALA
"Shaw's familiar, bouncy rhymes are well-matched to the loopy plot . . . A key feature of Apple's bright colored-pencil illustrations is the hilarious expressions of the ovine faces. The team's long-running series contiues to entertain, with text happily accessible to even the youngest readers." May 1, 2008 Kirkus Reviews
