Boo and Baa Have Company
by Lena & Olof Landstrom
Age Range: Under_5
As Boo and Baa the two intrepid sheep, are raking up leaves to be put on the compost pile they are surprised when their wheelbarrow appears to be making a strange meowing sound. But then they look up and discover a cat is stuck up in the tree. What can Boo and Baa do to help?
This endearing tale about the irresistible Boo and Baa from Swedish husband and wife team Lena and Olof Landström, is told in straightforward language but it's pen-and-ink watercolour illustrations that really make the book stand out. The use of bold outlines to depict Boo and Baa with their large, soulful eyes and expressive faces together with the varying size in the artwork and page layout adds both motion and visual appeal.
