Title: Sheep on a Ship
Rhyming misadventures of a group of zany sheep on a pirate ship
Team that delivered the winning and funny sheep in a Jeep have joined forces again for another irresistible trip in rhyme
Sheep are depicted as pirates, lulled to sleep on a calm green sea, but are awakened as dark clouds form a sudden storm
Boat pitches as winds whip sails rip sheep can't sail their sagging ship, apple's softly shaded colored pencil drawings add just the right touch of whimsy
Sheep abandon ship for a raft, dragging their treasure chest along and drift until "land ho Not far to go"
When the dripping sheep finally reach the dock they are glad to end their trip, the spare text is easily mastered by the beginning reader, while adults reading this aloud will appreciate the tongue-twisters and rollicking rhymes
