Booklist - 01/01/2018 Bedtime gets manic in this meta picture book about the havoc caused by one clumsy sheep. A brown-skinned boy is tucked in tight, and he’s counting sheep to help him nod off. He gets through 100, but sheep 101 takes a tumble and gets caught on the fence. From there, it’s mayhem: sheep 102 tries to get everything back in order, but sheep 103 arrives . . . and is not a sheep at all! Rather, 103 is a cow who’s taking a break from jumping over the moon to pitch in on fence duty. Other nursery rhyme characters arrive, and soon there’s a backlog of fence jumpers, and a LEGO helicopter has to intervene. Pham cleverly weaves elements of the boy’s bedroom throughout the illustrations—the field on which the sheep are jumping resembles the boy’s bedspread, and toys from his dresser appear among the characters. Morris’ over-the-top humor, particularly when the characters break the fourth wall, will delight imaginative kiddos, and despite the frenzied plot, there’s a nice bedtime wind down, too. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
