Ten Little Sleepyheads by Elizabeth Provost


Ten Little Sleepyheads by Elizabeth Provost

Starting from ten the drowsy bugs count down to zero as each of them drops off to sleep. With sleepyheads to identify on each page, whether they are a woolly caterpillar or a firefly, this is a book for the curious reader who loves images of stink bugs in stripy trousers and sweet potato weevils fast asleep on a pile of crackers. But, if anyone's still awake at the end it's time to turn back to the beginning and start counting again.
