A gorgeous, funny, tongue-twisting picture book by two incredibly talented creators. Perfect for bedtime reading.

Do you think the sleepy sheep will sleep on top of this wild and windy hill
Baah!
No-o-o, this windy hill is far too high and wild for a sleepy sheep to sleep on!
Do you think the sleepy sheep will sleep deep down in this steep and stony valley?
Baah!
No-o-o, this valley is far too deep, steep, and stony for a sleepy sheep to sleep in!

So where will the sleepy sheep end up sleeping? A delight from beginning to end - bedtime reading at its best.

About the Author

David Metzenthen lives in Melbourne. He was an advertising copywriter before turning to fiction, and a builder's labourer to support his first twenty years as a writer for young people. David is a below-average surfer, a keen fly fisherman, and a conservationist. He tries to write stories that will engage, entertain, and be worthy of the reader's time. The natural world is where he likes to spend time, and he supports various environmental foundations.

David hopes to write the perfect book, knows it will never happen, but works in hope... He is married to Fiona and has two children. He has travelled overseas but is inspired by this country, its people, and has always aimed to contribute to its literature and literacy.
