The delightful bibliophile Dog is back in his third adventure, this time searching for animals to count as alternatives to sheep, so that he can get to sleep. And what is the vehicle for this search? You’ve guessed it – a book. A very special one wherein he discovers all manner of creatures to enumerate, starting with one baby dodo that emerges from a large egg. From there, the two of them continue through the book encountering in turn, a three-toed sloth, … a five-lined skink… to a ten legged (including pincers) crab and so on to an infinitely grained sandy desert whereupon they discover that number one is missing. Not for long however and we leave them all star gazing and still counting, of course, until a-a-a-a-a-h-h-h, it’s morning once again and the start of another day filled with books, friends and I hope, more adventures. Wonderfully imagined, so cleverly constructed and brilliantly conveyed both visually and verbally, this is another sure-fire winning flight of fancy from the kennel of Louise Yates.
