Silli's Sheep

's sheep

For fans of Sophie's Squash and other super-silly picture books, here is the endearing story of a man named Silli who tries to tame the wind in ridiculous ways.

Silli lives in the middle of a meadow, in the open air. One morning, a gust of wind pays a visit--brrrr! What if the wind comes to stay? If only Silli could find some sheep, he'd have wool to knit a sweater to keep him warm. Luckily, he spots five large "sheep" up on a hill--perfect! It's just too bad they're resistant to herding and their wool is incredibly hard. But when Silli leans against them, they block the wind and keep him warm. . . . Perhaps he can build a shelter made of sheep?

And so he resourcefully arranges his sturdy sheep (which are actually sheep-shaped rocks) into a little hut, and is finally warm and dry. This charming story--crafted in the tradition of folkloric characters who are well-meaning, likable, and also a bit ridiculous--is sure to have a ton of kid appeal.---from the publisher
