Count­ing Sheep

Too much cheese and too much chocolate means the Children must resort to counting Sheep to get to sleep. But what happens when some dozy Ramblers leave the gate open…?

Don’t you ever wonder what we do at night?
Don’t you ever wonder what happens to us when you turn out the light?

A group of sleepless children too full on cheese and chocolate, count sheep to help them get off to sleep. Then some ramblers arrive who aren’t very good at reading maps and get everybody confused. How will it end?
