Description of this Book

Amos is counting himself to sleep. It's a good plan, until the cranky sheep land in his bedroom -- and start in with their many demands. It's bedtime for Amos, who smiles as he closes his eyes and counts some fluffy sheep trotting away in the grass. Until suddenly . . . THUD. And then another. Not again! says the first sheep, now on Amos's floor. I was having my wool clipped, grumbles the second. None too happy at being interrupted, the woolly pair fire a battery of questions at Amos, most importantly: Where's the fence? So Amos sets out to build one to their specifications, then is asked to test it out, of course. . . . In this laugh-out-loud read-aloud, a couple of crafty sheep put a child through his paces -- and show that a tuckered-out kid at bedtime is a win-win all around.
