About the Author:

Michael Foreman has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice. His books are published all over the world.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-5. A funny picture book from England revitalizes the usual bedtime scenario of a child calling for attention from an increasingly overwrought parent. Little Panda can't sleep. At first Dad is patient. He climbs the stairs, kisses Little Panda good night, brings him a drink. Then Dad shows Little Panda how to count sheep. He still can't sleep. "Count cows!" Dad shouts. Count pigs or tigers. Elephants. Dinosaurs. Each picture shows a very wide awake Little Panda, propped up on the pillow, counting carefully on his fingers as the creatures he counts bound across the walls and ceiling. Then in a final surprise, angry Dad bounds up the stairs, pushes open the door--and four pages open out to show the garish creatures packed together in the bedroom and all wanting a drink. The lively pictures express the comic fantasy that's both zany and reassuring. Hazel Rochman
