Horn Book Guide Reviews
"Peep! Peep! Peep-peep-peep! / All that peeping wakes up... / Sheep!" When one barnyard animal can't sleep, it wakes the next creature with its particular noise. This goes on until Farmer Sue catches the contagious beat; then it's party time. Craig's rhymes bop, and there's much to graze on in Brown's collages featuring hand-painted papers. Copyright 2011

It flows in a way that my child starts to anticipate the next part (for example, she shakes her head "no" before I read the line "No one here or anywhere", so I know its really got her attention).
My only wish is that the pages were matte instead of glossy, but that is a personal preference, so I won't mark it down for that.
One star removed because the sheep page in the book I was sent is printed upside down. I'm not sure if this is on purpose or an error, but either way, it isn't really necessary and it's out of place.
