Synopsis

We're Not Sleepy! by Joanne Partis

It was a warm summer's evening down on the farm. In the farmhouse, Mum said, 'Time for bed.' 'But we're not sleepy!' said her three little kittens. Of course, Mum knows the answer is to count sheep. Off the kittens go, across the farm to search for some sheep to count. They find one shaggy sheepdog, two munching cows, three playful foxes, four bouncy rabbits, and a whole host of colourful characters. But there's not a sheep in sight! Wherever can they all be hiding?

Reviews

This colourful counting book, with the added enticement of spotting the sheep on each page, should please the very young reader Inis Delightful Prima Baby

About the Author

Joanne has always enjoyed drawing and painting, so after finishing A-Level art, she went on to do a Foundation Course in Illustration at Loughborough. The course encouraged her to find an individual style and allowed her to experiment with different types of illustration.

In her third year, inspired by such classics and The Very Hungry Caterpilla, she began working on an idea for a children's book competition. This is how Stripe was born.

Inspiration has also come from her family cats, Oscar, Psyche, Leo, and Prue, despite their fondness for sitting on freshly painted artwork!
