Beep and Bah

Beep and Bah
by James Burks
unpaged picture book

Minneapolis : Carolrhoda Books, c2012.
Beep, a robot, sets out to help his goat friend, Bah find a missing sock. They travel through their quirky world asking every creature they encounter if the lone sock they have belongs to them. Determined Beep wakes a bear, confronts a bull and rolls through quicksand in his quest for the wayward sock. When they reach the end of the road they turn back for home never having found what they were looking for, but the reader will discover it. The cute cartoon panels are very fun to look at. Beep's personality is delightful and Bah is such a pleasant companion. Hopefully there will be more tales of this fun pair.
