Helen Yoon is a freelance illustrator and creative consultant operating in the greater Los Angeles area. Sheepish is her first picture book.
Amusing and endearing in equal measure, the detailed mixed-media
illustrations use light beautifully in the outdoor scenes and
effectively in the cafeteria-line picture, where the wolf's shadow
reveals his identity. The straightforward story unfolds with
simplicity, wit, and a certain irony based on the sheep's knowledge
of the wolf's secret. While their awareness of his duplicity gives
them the upper hand, their decision to befriend a would-be enemy
makes them completely lovable. A well-crafted picture book that's
great fun for reading aloud.
