I love the humor in this book, in the text and the drawings! I wasn't sure my 3 yr old daughter would get the humor (we got the book mostly b/c autumn is coming and the book also takes place in autumn) but now at random moments she calls out: "Phew says boo!" and starts laughing hysterically, and also "Lousy ladder says boo!". Also, Boo and Baa are a boy and girl, and they are portrayed as equals. Both are enterprising, both can get a little scared or apprehensive, and they are not slotted into doing "boy things" and "girl things" respectively, but both can do everything, as opposed to many other children's books. I am going to the library to get all the other boo and baa books!

Cute stuff... and very clever

This pair of Swedish sheep are the heroes of several much-beloved books... This is the only one I've seen, but it's a favorite around our house, and I look forward to tracking a few more of these books down and checking them out. Here, Boo and Baa are out doing some yardwork when a little black-and-white cat gets stuck in a tree, and when they try to get it down, Boo winds up a tree himself. The most captivating thing about these books is the kooky sense of humor: it's very, very subtle, but very, very sweet. Also, for those of us looking for nonviolent entertainment that isn't completely bland, this is a wonderful option. This is best for the littlest readers, but parents will appreciate the nuances of Landstrom's artwork, and the gentle, calming vibe of the story. Recommended. (ReadThatAgain!)

Look at Those Eyes!

I'm a teacher and writer who collects children's books, and I bought this book because it was so incredibly well reviewed by the Spring 2007 Horn Book Guide. I have to agree that it's a little masterpiece. The illustrator can do things with facial expressions that I've only ever seen two other places: Mo Willems's stuff and the Wallace and Grommit films. Plus the story has a quiet humor worthy of a Charlie Chaplin interlude. I suggest you meet Boo and Baa!
