KIRKUS REVIEW

Thank goodness: Swedish sheep Boo and Baa make their return to America after a six-year absence. This time they have yard work to do. They’ve raked the leaves, but they find that the wheelbarrow squeaks. After they oil it, it seems to meow. The smiling, wide-eyed duo discover a cat trapped in their tree. Sardines won’t lure it down. They can’t get it to cross a plank to the upstairs window. Boo attempts a rescue only to get stuck in the tree himself. When Baa tries to save him, they both end up flying through the air. Good thing that huge pile of leaves is there to break their fall. Preschoolers will love spotting the cat before Boo and Baa, and they’ll laugh out loud at the slapstick rescue attempts. Bright watercolor illustrations and a sprightly translation, not to mention the full-sized format, make this perfect for story times. (Picture book. 3-7)
