Go to Sleep! by Marion Adams illustrated by Sarah-Leigh Wills ** Review**

I'm delighted to welcome you today to celebrate a lovely picture book, Go to Sleep! by Marion Adams, illustrated by Sarah-Leigh Wills. Aimed at ages 3-7, it is a colourful read.
Tansy the sheep can’t go to sleep. She’s forgotten how to do it! But when she follows the barn owl’s advice and starts counting sheep, she realises that something is wrong … The award-winning bedtime story with a humorous twist that children will love!

This is a perfect book to share at bedtime and young children I have shared it with have enjoyed it immensely. The pictures are bright and bold and relevant to the text, giving plenty of opportunities for discussion and language development. The ending allows the child and adult to be involved in the joke. I also liked the patterning of the words when wondering what might have happened to the missing sheep: 'perhaps...'  'perhaps...' perhaps...'. A great picture book and an enjoyable read.

Cat and Mouse say: don't let those sheep escape!

About the Author


Marion Adams has been writing for as long as she can remember, usually for fun and sometimes for money as well. She started her career as an in-house copywriter with a publisher and now works as a freelance proofreader and editor. It’s her dream job because she’s paid to read all day (and eat dark chocolate). Over the years, she’s written all kinds of things for both adults and children, some serious and some less so, with published work including magazine stories, articles, poems, plays and non-fiction books. 

Marion lives in Devon, UK, and when she’s not reading or writing (or eating dark chocolate), she loves going for walks on the wild moors where her picture book Go To Sleep! is set.
