"This cute story brings back the beloved sheep, plus we meet an expressive bird and a gaggle of helpful space aliens. The sheep have an adventure in space, and the aliens save them from mishaps. The rhyming is clever, the illustrations delightful. Funny details in the illustrations include a knitting sheep and (spoiler!) an alien emerging from the spaceship's bathroom." said.

"Nancy Shaw, Sheep Blast Off (Houghton Mifflin, 2008)

Another of the Sheep books that doesn't measure up to the original (cf. recent review of Sheep Take a Hike), but that has the interesting side effect of revealing another facet of the original that makes it work so well. Obviously, if you've got a flock of sheep in a jeep with one driving, you're suspending a modicum of disbelief, but once you've gotten to that level, you don't need to go farther; everything works, everything is internally consistent. With Sheep Blast Off, on the other hand, it seemed almost as if Shaw was trying to outdo herself with every passing page with the silliness. On the other hand, the language is consistent and fun—if your child is already a fan of the Sheep series, take this one out of the library and give it a look. Else, start with the original (and still best) book in the series, Sheep in a Jeep. ** ½

"All of Nancy's Sheep books are funny and tell great stories. My kids grew up with Nancy." said.

"A great series for kids that includes not only silly sheep doing silly things, but many great reading opportunities to learn rhyming words, repetition, predict silly situations and enjoy the funny things the sheep did in this series. One of my favorite series for kids!" said.

"I love this as much as the jeep story, as did my son . ..especially since he loves space and rockets." said.
