Review: Too Many Sheep

When Grandpa Jack (with a yarn to spin) tells his young grandson how best to get to sleep, havoc looms as the bedroom quickly fills with sheep… after sheep… after sheep.

As the counting begins, the sheep start leaping through the window and walking through the door. The sheep make themselves at home; jumping on the bed, reading books, playing hide and seek, making snacks in the kitchen, going to the loo and even showering and shaving.

Soon there are too many sheep in the room… and too many to count!

Author illustrator Christina Booth cleverly tells a humorous 'going to bed story' with a twist.
Using a gorgeous colour pallet and cut-out layered shapes, the illustrations are not only unique and slick but they provide the perfect backdrop to the easy-to-read along text.

You’ll fall in love with each sheep as they spring onto the pages, as well as the gorgeous endpapers.

With its rollicking rhyme, Too Many Sheep is the perfect going to bed story for any child and 'a must have' for every household with littlies.
