EWE AND AYE written by Candace Ryan / illustrated by Stephanie Ruble

The image above opens up to the gatefold below, which is double the width of the rest of the pages in the book, and looks much better in real life ;) -

Easter Egg: I didn't mean to sneak the word, "toy" into this illustration. Originally there were four tools in Ewe's tool belt, but they were squished and one needed to go. When I pulled one out, this image was the result. The toolbelt now spells out the word "TOY." Can you find it in the book?

Catalog Copy: EWE was a sheep with a feel for wheels. AYE was a lemur with a thing for wings. BUT it wasn’t until Ewe and Aye found one another that things really got off the ground. Whimsical word play and heartfelt humor work hand-in-hand in this irresistibly vibrant celebration of the unlimited possibilities of togetherness.

Reviews:
Kirkus: "Ryan’s punning is nicely expanded in Ruble’s zippy illustrations. ... Lots of fun."

School Library Journal: "The goggle-wearing animals in their heart-soled sneakers are expressive and charming. ... The wordplay is clever, and the art is sweet ..."

Publisher's Weekly: "But the real attraction is debut illustrator Ruble—she brings an exuberant energy to each scene ..."

Booklist: "Positive and inspirational, this will strike a chord with young readers who have big dreams."
