PreSchool-Grade 1–Little Bo Peep has trouble sleeping, and she cannot count sheep–she's lost them! She spent the afternoon searching for them with the help of a farmer (in a dell), two kids named Jack and Jill, and Humpty Dumpty, but to no avail. Her brother, Little Boy Blue, convinces her that telling their parents would be disastrous, and so Peep hides the fact that the sheep are lost. But come bedtime, her conscience just won't leave her alone. When Humpty brings the animals home, she is able to confess. With a gentle parental reprimand, the youngster is able to rest. Written in verse, this story about truthfulness borders on didactic but Wakiyama's playful, retro-style oil paintings save the day. Their whimsical look keeps the book fresh and childlike; in vivid and saturated colors, the illustrations show Peep's unease through sharp angles and up-close perspectives. The writing style, subject, and artwork make this a good companion to this duo's Goldie Locks Has Chicken Pox (S & S, 2002). A fun addition for children ready to graduate from Mother Goose.–Angela J. Reynolds, Washington County Cooperative Library Services, Hillsboro, OR --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
