Poor Bo Peep can't count sheep to help her fall asleep because she lost her flock that day! Unable to sleep with worry for the sheep, and angst over whether she out to tell her parents she lost them, Bo thinks back over the day and how her brother Little Boy Blue and others (all nursery rhyme characters) helped her look for the sheep. Will the sheep come home, wagging their tails behind them? And will Bo Peep 'fess up to her parents?

A cute enough story, one that should benefit children wrestling
Very cute book. It uses a lot of the Fairytale rhymes to help Bo Peep find her sheep so she can get to sleep. :)

I read it to my class and they enjoyed the book because of the familiar nursery rhymes' characters they encountered.
Anyone who has tossed and turned at night due to worrying and anxiety can identify with Bo Peep!
This is the hippest kid's book ever. It's like art deco meets Mother Goose.
Little Bo Peep can't sleep because she is feeling guilty and worried...she can't find her sheep. Little Boy Blue blew his horn and scared her sheep and she is afraid to tell her parents. This is a cute rhyming book that continues Bo Peep's story...and she learns a valuable lesson about being honest and trusting her parents. This weaves in several other nursery rhyme characters. My 4 yo daughter really liked it.

I discovered this gem on a trip to the library with my nieces and nephew a few years ago. I ordered it, and now Daniel has discovered it. The writing is clever and sweet, and the illustrations superb.
Mommy says: Kinda campy! Illustrated (including font choices) like the 1960s Little Golden Books. Little Bo Peep comes across many other nursery rhyme characters in her quest to fall asleep.
