Let Me Sleep, Sheep!

Author: Meg McKinlay,  illust. Leila Rudge

Publisher: Walker Books

This latest tale from award-winning duo Meg McKinlay and Leila Rudge puts a delightfully original spin on the idea of counting sleep. The somewhat hapless Amos gets more than he bargained for one night as his bedroom gradually fills with disgruntled sheep who insist that they are more than mere numbers to be counted. The hilarious shenanigans start with the arrival of the first sheep, Felix, who has firm opinions about the dimensions of the fence necessary for jumping over and soon he and his articulate, woolly cohort are bossing Amos about and justifying their demands with increasingly zany reasons. The witty story, complemented by exquisite illustrations, will delight parents and young children alike and is guaranteed to become a bedtime favourite.
