Book Review: Sheep Take a Hike

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is the fourth sequel to Sheep in a Jeep; in this rendition the sheep go on a hike, get lost, and eventually find their way home to a cozy stable by following the trail of bits of wool on tree branches.  The illustrations are as wonderful as ever, but word choice isn’t as clever as the original, the rhythm is less consistent, and the humor is beginning to wear out.  This makes a nice once-read, especially if the original was received well, but this one probably wouldn’t hold up to much rereading.
