Staff Reviews


If the subtitle, 'a tale of literacy, dental hygiene, and friendship' doesn't hook you, then maybe I'll just plead that you give these two hilarious sheep as they set out for an adventure a chance. Think of this as a story of a fuzzier but just as absurd Lucy-and-Ethel-type duo with a dangerous wolf thrown in for good measure.

— From Nicole

Description


A hilarious and satisfying tale of literacy, dental hygiene, and friendship from David Elliott and Melissa Sweet that is sure to have readers in stitches from start to finish.

Baabwaa is a sheep who loves to knit. Wooliam is a sheep who loves to read. It sounds a bit boring, but they like it. Then, quite unexpectedly, a third sheep shows up. A funny-looking sheep who wears a tattered wool coat and has long, dreadfully decaying teeth. Wooliam, being well-read, recognizes their new acquaintance: the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing The wolf is so flattered to discover his literary reputation precedes him that he stops trying to eat Baabwaa and Wooliam. And a discovery by the sheep turns the encounter into an unexpected friendship.
