Where’s Wilson?

an Evie & Knox story

It’s time to go to sleep. But one of the counting sheep from the Sweet Dream Team has gone missing. With bedtime soon approaching, and the town in a fuss, They need to find Wilson. They have to! They must!

Where’s Wilson? is a whimsical, illustrated story about Wilson, an important member of the Sweet Dream Team, who wanders away from the team. With bedtime rapidly approaching, the whole community bands together to find Wilson. After all, how can anyone manage to fall asleep if there aren’t enough sheep to count?

Where’s Wilson? is a delightful rhyming picture book, complete with fanciful watercolor illustrations that vividly bring the story to life. Children will love the sing-song verses and discovering new objects and characters in the multi-layered pictures.

Where’s Wilson is the second in a series of Evie & Knox night time story books.


This has become a bedtime staple in our house! We read it so much my 3 and 5 year olds help tell the story. Simple but cute tale of a wayward counting sheep whose friends set out to find him. Great rhythm to the words, and excellent illustrations. Bedtime isn’t complete without Wilson!
