    Comments about Seven More Sleeps : Babs the Bay & Fog the Dog:

    A great story to read aloud and then one for early readers as there is some repetition and a pattern. The only comment would be having the number graphically displayed at each countdown (ie the number 6 when they say "six more sleeps' would have been helpful for visual learning but that is a minor point in an otherwise excellent book with a humourous twist at the end and colourful illustrations.

    Service and delivery comments:

    It took Booktopia about 6 months to source this book, but they were the only supplier to do so, everyone else said they couldn't get it, so well done Booktopia!
