I just love Nancy Shaw's "Sheep ..." series, but I am a big fan of sheep in general! This is another title where the group of sheep get up to mischief, this time on a rocket ship. Designed for a little bit older reader that may have been introduced to the simpler themed humororus tales earlier in their childhood. ( )

This book is about some sheep that decide to go into a space craft, but when they start flying they realize they don't know how to fly it. Luckily for them, there are some aliens on board that know exactly how to work the big space craft. ( )

Michigan author Nancy Shaw has been writing 'the sheep books' since 1986 when "Sheep in a Jeep" debuted. Book seven in the series takes the sheep into outerspace. A spaceship lands nearby and the loveably goofy sheep end up blasting off. This latest book is a fun romp with Shaw's hillarious illustrations that hold a story of their own. The sheep books are written so that they are easy for beginning readers, making use of a large font, rhyming text and simple words. Check them all out! ( )

Genre: Science Fiction

Critique: This book is an excellent book for science fiction because it is a fantasy type novel that stresses technological inventions

Summary: A strange space craft lands in a field, and the sheep decide to go inside. After they begin to fly around, they realize that they have no idea how to fly it. Luckily for them, there happens to be aliens on board who can help them.

Style: The author uses a lot of alliteration and rhyming in her book. This adds to the interest and silliness of the book in the adventures of the seven silly sheep

Media: Colored pencil ( )
