"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

" The pictures tell half the story as sheep investigate an alien rocket and end up in space. Was a pretty good read aloud. " said.

" A fun, silly book full of astronaut and outer space sheep! Young readers will get a kick out of this one. " said.

" Sheep Blast off! is a great book fiction book to add to a science unit. This would be best for K-2. I like all the rhyming words and the rhyme, for example, "Sheep snoop. Sheep explore. Sheep climb through the spaceship door." " said.

" Had to do last minute Toddler Time for E. Chose to do this one after browsing her book stack.6/8/16 Space theme. Not so great. I thought the crowd was excited for another book. Turns out they were past their Toddler limit. I read it quickly for the 4 or 5 who were paying attention. " said.

" A favorite. Any children's book that includes the word "stratosphere" is a winner. " said.
