An influenza plague decimates humanity…
A man loses his wife and baby daughter…
Six years after a pandemic devastates the human population, former rock star Chris Price finally makes it from New York to Britain to reunite with his brother. His passage leaves him scarred, in body and mind, by exposure to humankind at its most desperate and dangerous. But another ordeal awaits him beyond the urban ruins, in an idyllic country refuge where Chris meets a woman, Pauline, who is largely untouched by the world’s horrors. Together, Chris and Pauline undertake the most difficult facet of Chris’s journey: confronting grief, violence, and the man Chris has become. They will discover whether the human spirit is capable of surviving and loving again in this darker, harder world.
Here is the Sheep in a Jeep book description from the Amazon website:
“Beep! Beep! Sheep in a jeep on a hill that’s steep.”
This story, much like the jeep, gathers momentum from page one. When five foolish sheep cram into one jeep, their high spirits and occasional lack of foresight (like forgetting to steer) combine to make a riotous, if ill-fated, road trip. Plummeting over a hill, tumbling into a mud puddle, yelping for help, these muttonheads just can’t get their act together, much to the delight of young readers.
Nancy Shaw’s Seussian rhymes are guaranteed to tickle every reader’s funny bone, while providing a great little learning tool, as well. Who wouldn’t want to learn how to read, after hearing lines like this: “Jeep goes splash! Jeep goes thud! Jeep goes deep in gooey mud!” Well-loved illustrator Margot Apple humorously captures the dopey expressions and preposterous predicaments of Shaw’s sheep.
