From Amazon

Poor Amos! What's a sheep to do when he's old and cold and Aunt Hattie has just made a beautiful new sweater for Uncle Henry from his wool? Get the wool back--that's Amos's answer in Janet Lunn's absolutely hilarious picture book Amos's Sweater. Old Amos is one determined sheep, and kids will root for him as he fights to reclaim his wool. Kim LaFave's watercolour illustrations add to the fun as Amos does battle with clotheslines, fences, and the sweater itself before ultimately winning the day. Janet Lunn is one of Canada's finest storytellers, known for novels for older readers, such as The Hollow Tree, as well as her picture books. Amos's Sweater was awarded the Ruth Schwartz Children's Book Award and the Governor General's Award for illustration when it was first published in 1989. (Ages 2 to 6) --Jeffrey Canton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
