LoveReading View on A Thousand Billion Things (and Some Sheep)

‘I don’t like going to sleep’ says our narrator, all red hair, baggy shorts and attitude. Why? It’s a matter of choice: across different spreads we are shown the choices to be made throughout the day, from what to eat at breakfast, to whether to do your homework or ‘forget’. But at bedtime when you want to go to sleep the only thing to count is sheep. The vast amount of choice on offer is illustrated in pages jam-packed full of objects, and readers are challenged to scour them to find hidden items, a nibbled carrot, a frog mask, toy dinosaurs. Quirky and unusual it’s lots of fun to look at and Anne Morel’s stylish illustrations will keep readers happily poring over the pages for hours. ~ Andrea Reece


A Thousand Billion Things (and Some Sheep) Synopsis

Every day presents us with a wide range of choices including what to have to breakfast, what to wear and what to do in our spare time. Even deciding which piece of homework to tackle first presents a challenge. But when night comes and it's time for bed, what choice is there but to lie in the dark ... and count sheep? This book takes us through all the choices in a typical child's busy day and presents the reader with a puzzle. On every spread there's something specific to find amongst the thousand billion (well, almost) things in the bright and busy artwork.
