Let Me Sleep, Sheep!
Walker Books, 2019
32pp., hbk., RRP $A24.99
Amos is finding it difficult to sleep so he resorts to the old strategy of counting sheep. But when two of those sheep tumble from his dream and land with a thud in his bedroom, the fun starts. Especially when they demand that Amos build them a fence to jump over, then drinks, a finish line and a party!
Turning the familiar routine of counting sheep jumping a fence on its head, this is a fun-filled story that will appeal to children who have a sense of the ridiculous for usually it is the child making more and more demands on tired adults in their quest to avoid closing their eyes, while this time it is the child who has to meet the demands before being allowed to drift off.,
This is another from the team that created the award-winning No Bears and the synergy that results means that this is another winner that will engage and enthral and make young readers LOL.
