Description of this Book

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.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Elliott's tale is cleverly humorous and a joy to read aloud. Sweet's illustrations in watercolor, gouache, and mixed media are a stellar accompaniment...The characters are all highly expressive, and the graph paper and strands of yarn in the page design add to the nonstop merriment. Great for knitters, for readers, for fun-seeking adventurers.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
