Ewe and Aye
A Ewe is a sheep, but it also sounds like “you.” Aye is an aye-aye, a big-eyed night creature, a lemur. (I would give the lemur bigger eyes and smaller ears.) Aye sounds like “I.” Ewe and Aye want to fly. Ewe tries to use wheels. Aye wants to use wings. One time, Aye tries to attract a bird with birdseed, but the bird that shows up is really big (the size of a Roc, a mythical creature). Ewe puts helium in a tire. She sits on it. It flies for a second, then pop! bam! (Maybe the atmosphere made a flat tire.) Ewe and Aye talk, and they fly with a bike and wings together. This book is so-so. It needs more oomph. It’s not possible to fly to the moon like that, so I didn’t like the end. (How do they control the wings? Because when they are pedaling, all the wings would do is spin.) I did like how they became friends and worked together. Younger kids would like this. Babies won’t know what a ewe and an aye-aye are. There are hearts hidden in the pictures.
