KIRKUS REVIEW

Ipcar's bold design and unmodulated colors work well in this uncomplicated fantasy about two lambs -- one black and one white -- who ignore their mothers' calls to go home at the end of the day and instead gallop over a rainbow bridge and into a land of giant flowers and butterflies. They meet an enormous caterpillar and at last a huge ram who sends them running back through the forest of oversized grass (""This is what it must be like to be ants in a meadow"") and home to their mothers, who ""scolded their little lambs and gave them breakfast"" -- to everyone's satisfaction.
