Wonderful characters and wonderfully illustrated. 2005 Children's Book of the Year for Early Childhood. . Review Everybody loves sheep, and this flock cunningly portrays concepts in a fun and clever manner. We are first introduced to the blue sheep and the red sheep. Sheep in various activities are presented but one sheep is missing--the green sheep. Tanning sheep, diving sheep--even Gene Kelly in sheep's clothing makes an appearance dancing and singing in the rain. (Twenty-first century children will most likely not understand that allusion, but it is a great page!) Horacek's playful pen and watercolor images convey Fox's text with practical simplicity and friendly colors with just the right amount of white space on each spread. A few opposites are included along with an assortment of colorful and colorless sheep engaged in different activities. Can you find the reflective sheep? But what about that elusive green sheep? By the end of the book you will find out. Reviewer: Elizabeth Young, Children's Literature - Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox.
