by Nancy E. Shaw (Author), Margot Apple (Illustrator). Sheep Trick or Treat is just not up to par with the earlier titles. Shaw's familiar rhythm and rhyme are still in evidence as the six prepare costumes and head out trick or treating. They collect goodies from the farm animals ("Spiders give a dried-up fly. Sheep decide to pass it by"). And as one might expect, they are followed by wolves dressed in sheepskins. Apple's illustrations here are somewhat dark and shadowy. The sheep dressed as a vampire on the front cover may actually frighten some children.

I also own and love "Sheep in a Jeep" in the same series. This version has longer rhymes (in rhyming iambic tetrameter) and it is cleverly written. Some of the verses might feel a little overworked, and just the tiniest bit forced, but not really. It tells the story of the sheep preparing their costumes and then going trick-or-treating at their various animal friends' homes, receiving eggs from the chickens, clover from the cows, etc. On their way home their frightening costumes scare away the wolves, their would-be predators. They arrive home safely to enjoy their treats. The sheep's expressions are hilarious, and they are really fun to look at. My only complaint is the line "it's dark, but they are not afraid," as if it would be customary for them to be afraid due to the darkness. I try to stay away from stories about being scared of the dark, so that I don't introduce that concept to my son, who is still too young for it to occur to him to be scared of the dark. I haven't come across very many Halloween-themed board books, and this one is a great one. A great addition to your holiday/special occasion collection. I plan to pick up other books in this series.

Our 3 year old grandson absolutely loved it! He kept taking the book to everyone and sat with them reading it. He loves all the Sheep books!

Bought the book on a whim because I have a friend who loves sheep and I love Halloween. The rhymes are catchy, and simple, the pictures are fun at first look, and even more fun to look at again and again to point out all the silliness and explore the words. The idea of sculpting a Frankensheep monster costume using gel and the wooly coat just tickled us when we read this little board book.

Ends abruptly so it wasn't the usual smooth finish to a storybook, but overall fun four stars.

The little ones love this collection of books! Hope to see more of these soon

"As the Halloween moon rises/Sheep are fixing up disguises"

With flowing rhymes and beautiful illustrations, this is the best of the Sheep books I have seen so far. The rhymes are slightly longer than Sheep in a Jeep Lap-Sized Board Book and Sheep in a Shop (Read-Along) , and they are fun to read. The illustrations are charming as always. The part about the sheep not being afraid in the dark wood is a good illustration of how to be brave. All in all, this is a book that you *could* keep for a special time of year ... but you probably won't.

I have purchased three of the sheep board books and they are great! The stories and illustrations are so fun! My kids love them!
Cute, fun.
