Horn Book Review

In their seventh rhyming outing, the intrepid sheep take a rocket ride into space. The energetic colored-pencil drawings reveal green space-sheep hidden on board; the sheep never see them, but it's the aliens who get their earth brethren back home safe and sound. The somewhat tired formula bounces along as well as it ever has. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
