Product Description

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 alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Award Governor General's Literary Award for Illustration Ruth Schwartz Award Amos the sheep is old and cold and tired of giving up all his wool. But despite his noisy objections, Aunt Hattie shears Amos once again and knits his wool into a brightly colored sweater for Uncle Henry. Poor Amos decides that this time he's had enough -- and he sets out to reclaim what is rightfully his.

When our daughters outgrew this book I was sad and unable to give it away even when we packed up to move to another country. Imagine how heartwarming it was to read it to my granddaughter and listen to her peals of laughter! It is perfect!
