From critically acclaimed author Lucy Ruth Cummins and Pete Oswald, New York Times bestselling illustrator of The Sour Grape and The Big Cheese, comes a story featuring Sleepy Sheepy and his very first sleepover!

It's time for Sleepy Sheepy's very first sheepover! But when it's time for bed, Sleepy Sheepy CANNOT SLEEPY! You see, his blankets scratch, and his pj's don't match! Sleepy Sheepy...misses his home! Will Grammy and Grampy ever get their favorite little sheep to sleep?

From acclaimed author Lucy Ruth Cummins and brought to life by New York Times bestselling illustrator Pete Oswald (The Bad Seed, The Good Egg, The Smart Cookie, The Sour Grape), Sleepy Sheepy and the Sheepover is a fun and funny bedtime read-aloud that will appeal to any child who has felt a bit unsure at their first sleepover. 

Praise for Sleepy Sheepy and the Sheepover:

"Young readers needn’t feel sheepish about appreciating this sweet, entertaining story." --Kirkus reviews

"Amusing and endearing. As a classroom read-aloud choice, this picture book is sure to elicit sleepover memories from young listeners." --Booklist

"With humor that can only be dubbed fluffy and terrific bouncy rhymes, this warm bedtime story of a “sheep-over” will be a comfort for young children." -- School Library Journal




Praise for Sleepy Sheepy and the Sheepover:


"With humor that can only be dubbed fluffy and terrific bouncy rhymes, this warm bedtime story of a “sheep-over” will be a comfort for young children...Oswald’s cartoon-like illustrative style features wonky shapes that bubble across the pages, mimicking the sheep’s bumpy wool and highlighting his wide-eyed expressions, while light purples, golds, and blues express an atmospheric serenity that Sheepy and readers will need. With its strong story and ebullient illustrations, this story can help address readers’ personal apprehension about sleepovers or spark discussion in a preschool setting about recognizing and easing homesickness." -- School Library Journal 

"Cummins brings her gently humorous story, written in bouncy rhymes, to a predictable ending, but readers will enjoy it nonetheless, especially kids (er, lambs) who have had their own first “sheepovers” at a beloved relative’s home. The cheerful, lively illustrations are endearing; boldfaced typefaces of different sizes are incorporated playfully into the text. Young readers needn’t feel sheepish about appreciating this sweet, entertaining story." --Kirkus reviews

"As in the previous volume, the text is relatively short and, while written in prose, includes rhyming couplets from time to time, just for fun. . . . Oswald's illustrations are both amusing and endearing. As a classroom read-aloud choice, this picture book is sure to elicit sleepover memories from young listeners." --Booklist


Pete Oswald is the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of The Good Egg, as well as The Bad Seed, which was an Amazon Best Children's Book of the Year and an indie favorite. He has worked as a character designer, a concept artist, and an art director on many popular films, including Madagascar 2, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Angry Birds.  He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three sons.
