Summary
After Lena's parents tuck her into bed, a conventional scenario gives way to a humorous fantasy. Needing help to fall asleep, she bids her wooly friends to come out. "I'm ready to count you now, " says the curly haired girl. But the sheep are frightened by the round monster in the window (the full moon, pictured making a grotesque face) and hide under Lena's bed. At her suggestion, they dress up in costumes so the moon will not know you are sheep. This creates a new conundrum: they are so clumsy in their costumes that they can't line up to be counted until Lena finds a solution that helps her finally get to sleep. Her earnest, tactical conversation with the sheep takes some amusing turns; when they lament that the moon looks hungry and ready for a sheep snack, she says, "He's not hungry. He's already full." Lobel's (Nini Lost and Found) gouache and watercolor art adds to the story's offbeat humor; the sheep's vivid disguises include cat masks, tutus, sailor outfits, and more
