Children's first jeep manual

Just a quick background, I have a 16 month old boy who loves books. His favorite is called "Sheep in a Jeep" by Nancy Shaw. It is one of the funniest children's books I have read, and if you have a young one, you have to show them a copy. Here is the story, but the pictures make it hilarious:

"Beep! Beep! Sheep in a Jeep on a hill that's steep.
Uh-oh! The Jeep won't go.
Sheep leap to push the jeep.
Sheep shove, sheep grunt, sheep don't think to look up front.
Jeep goes splash! Jeep goes thud! Jeep goes deep in gooey mud.
Sheep tug, sheep shrug, sheep yelp, sheep get help.
Jeep comes out.
Sheep shout.
Sheep cheer.
Oh dear! Driver sheep forgets to steer.
Jeep in a heep.
Sheep weep.
Sheep sweep the heap.
Jeep for sale---cheap."

I know it is not the most technical of owner's manuals, but if they get a book, it may as well be about a Jeep!

All the illustrations have them in a CJ6. I was wondering where a sheep learns how to hotwire a jeep...
