I've enjoyed Mr. Proimos' previous books, but this one is the funniest yet. It has the same warmth and offbeat humor as "Joe's Wish" and "Loudness of Sam" (both of which I highly recommend). But I must admit -- this latest book of his left me, along with my 4 and 6 year-old laughing out loud. No child can resist a sheep that dresses up like a runny nose, nor should they! And no adult will either. This is going to be an instant classic - so buy it now. Better yet, buy the hardcover!!

This is just another book that draws on Nickeledoen and other kids TV for its inspiration. It can be funny but this style of book is feeling so much like watching TV, I'd like to turn it off. Joe's Wish was very charming and had a nice message but this comic book is just a waste of time. This is not a children's book in its truest sense. Mr. Proiimos, please go bck to the Loudness of Sam and your special gift of creating children's literature that does not imitate TV.
