The Lovereading4Kids comment

A magical bedtime adventure unfolds when Tom does what his mother advises and counts sheep to help him get to sleep. But, when one sheep escapes, counting sheep turns into counting wolves, and penguins and pirates and pythons and even ghosts! Will Tom ever get to sleep? Kathryn Cave’s lively text is perfectly matched by award-winning illustrator Chris Riddell’s rumbustious illustrations.

Synopsis

Counting Sheep by Kathryn Cave

When Tom finds it hard to get to sleep, counting sheep is just the beginning - counting pythons and pirates, vampire bats and ghosts is a lot more fun. Readers are led on a wild and woolly counting adventure that goes all the way up to a hundred.
