Sheep is so happy! What could be causing this unusually cheerful mood? His friends really want to know and are eager to guess. Sheep tells them it starts with the letter “f.” Donkey ponders this for a few seconds and thinks fish is the secret reason. Dog seems to think a fan would make Sheep feel really happy. After giving it a lot of thought, Duck is certain that turnips make Sheep happy. Turnips?! It doesn’t even start with the letter “f”! How will they ever find out what makes their friend so happy? The Giggle Gang is back with another delightful story for budding readers. This is a fun and easy book to read. The sentences are short and the text is repetitive. The size of the text is large with special words and letters in bold fonts or in bright colors to emphasize their importance. The characters are full of expressive emotions. From happy to aggravated, children will be able to recognize how the characters are feeling. VERDICT Even young readers who are not familiar with Thomas’s earlier books and characters will find this story entertaining. A great step toward independent reading that children will want to read again and again.—Barbara Spiri, Southborough Library, MA
