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.
