But it was time for bed
(At least, that's what the clock said.)
But Sleepy Sheepy would not sleepy.
He was wired. And absolutely not tired!
In fact, he was WIDE-AWAKE. Despite his name, Sleepy Sheepy is NOT sleepy. He'd much rather build with blocks or knit socks than go to sleep. Will Ma and Pa Sheepy ever get their sheepy to go to sleepy? From acclaimed author Lucy Ruth Cummins and brought to life by #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator Pete Oswald (The Bad Seed, The Good Egg, The Smart Cookie, The Sour Grape), Sleepy Sheepy is a hilarious bedtime read-aloud that will appeal to little lambs everywhere. Praise for Sleepy Sheepy "Caregivers will enjoy making this a bedtime read, and librarians will turn to this often for pajama storytimes. An entertaining tale sure to resonate with those on either side of the bedtime battle."--Kirkus reviews "This could easily end up a story hour favorite and an often checked-out new bedtime classic for not-so-tired kids and their very tired parents; this will especially work a spell on preschoolers." --School Library Journal "Sleepy Sheepy, rendered by Oswald in fluffy, cloud-like textures, insists he's anything but sleepy . . .even the most bedtime-resistant readers will respect his exhausted capitulation." --Publishers Weekly
