Written By Pippa Chorley, Illustrated by Danny Deeptown. Published by Marshall Cavendish.
When I first received the manuscript for Counting Sheep I thought it was a perfect rhyming story. It’s full of puzzling fun and adventure that will have children counting sheep whilst smiling themselves to sleep. My only concern was the amount of sheep that needed illustrating in the book (there are loads of them), but I couldn’t turn it down. Ironically I did lose sleep illustrating this book, but it was worth it!
It all begins one cold, dark and stormy night when Sam can’t sleep and her mum suggests that she count some sheep. But how can Sam count them when one of the sheep can’t jump over the fence?
Follow Sam and her flock in this frolicking fun farmyard tale as they try to help little Shep find a way over the fence.
Will they find the answer so Sam can finally get to sleep?
