Synopsis

One More Sheep by Mij Kelly, Russell Ayto

A reissue of this Hodder classic - a witty, rhyming, counting adventure, perfect to read aloud. Sam has ten sheep and he has to be sure that he's fetched them all in from the wild windy moor. To do this, Sam has to count them...but everyone knows counting sheep tires you out and sends you to sleep! How will he know that the knock on the door isn't a lost lamb but a wolf when he can't count up to ten? A lively and creative book which will be well used in Early Years and Key Stage 1.
