There's Only One Ewe by Pete Longname is a story in verse that revolves around a ewe who is special, rare, and ewe-nique, as the author terms it. Ewe is bold and keen on doing anything and everything after taking that giant leap over fear. Ewe is the hero in the verse; she can cartwheel here and there, and faces every challenge without retreating. Ewe is tough and she is a wonderful combination of soul, mind, and heart. She dreams of being an over-achiever and always winning. She keeps dreaming about all these things and hopes that they will blossom and grow and become true one day.
The verse is adorable and charming and will put a smile on the faces of readers. Ewe is someone which every child will want to be - rare, unique, bold - and her keenness to learn and try out new things is infectious. The style of writing is delightful and children will be able to connect well with the words. The book also gives them the opportunity to dream and put down their thoughts in the same format. The book encourages children to try their hand at writing poems and being more creative and imaginative. It is a good book for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries, and is also perfect for bedtime story-telling. Ewe’s character is lovable and memorable and she teaches a lot of good things to young readers, which is why this book is a must-read.
