Charlotte is different from all the other sheep. She likes to explore the world around her, climbing up trees and wandering near the dangerous road while the wary old sheep “tsk, tsk.” But when danger strikes, only Charlotte is brave enough to go for help and save the day. This beautifully illustrated tale speaks to all shy little sheep who stand out from the crowd and aren’t afraid to follow their dreams.

PreS-Gr. 2. The other sheep huddle sheeplike in the pasture, but Charlotte is a risk taker. They shake their heads when they see her leaping riverbanks and climbing peaks, and sheepdog Jack has his paws full with Charlotte. Yet Charlotte's intrepid behavior is an asset when the shepherd breaks his leg. It's Charlotte who makes her way to the farmer's house to get help, climbing over the mountains and getting a truck driver to give her a lift. Of course, all ends well, and that expected outcome adds to the book's main problem--a lack of surprise. On the plus side, the artwork, in an oversize format, is both handsome and just a bit whimsical--especially the spread showing four sheep staring out at the reader and asking, "What is she up to now?" The text is short enough to be easily read aloud, and there are a few lessons about bravery--as well as a caution that taking rides from truck drivers is only for sheep. Ilene Cooper
