Let Me Sleep, Sheep!

By Meg McKinlay
Illustrated by Leila Rudge

A hilarious picture book from award-winning picture book duo Meg McKinlay and Leila Rudge.

When Amos starts counting sheep, there’s one thing he doesn’t quite count on … How’s he supposed to sleep when the sheep land – THUD! THUD! – in his bedroom? This zany tale of bedtime shenanigans is the new picture book from the award-winning duo behind No Bears and Once Upon A Small Rhinoceros.

  • Perfect for parents, grandparents and teachers to read aloud.
  • Children with a great sense of humour and love of the ridiculous will enjoy this book.
  • A laugh-out-loud read-aloud about a couple of crafty sheep who put a child through his paces.
