Ann Arborite Nancy Shaw is the author of SHEEP IN A JEEP and seven other sheep adventures, as well as ELENA'S STORY, inspired by a visit to Guatemala. Playing word games on family car trips got her into the rhyming habit. She went on to study English literature at the University of Michigan and Harvard. Her work has received many honors, including the U-M's Hopwood Award, Parents Magazine Best Kids Books of the Year, School Library Journal Best Books of the Year, and Horn Book Fanfare. Her new book, SHEEP GO TO SLEEP, ensued after she wrote the essay on Nicola's Books for the Black Dog & Leventhal anthology MY BOOKSTORE. Her piece contains the sheep's book-buying adventure "Sheep Phone It In."
