Publisher Summary

“Farmer Brown was shearing sheep, piling up a snowy heap of wool that filled his shed, knee-deep…” But when the temperature drops, his shivering sheep see all their wool in sacks—and “BAAA!” they cry. “WE WANT IT BACK!” Young listeners will enjoy chiming in on this hilarious read-aloud as Farmer Brown’s sheep track down their wool. As the farmer goes form one neighbor to the next, his sheep discover how their fleece changes when it’s cleaned, carded, spun into yarn, and dyed. Can they get it back? It’s the tender-hearted Farmer Brown himself who comes up with the surprise solution. “Now each year, come shearing time, the sheep wait eagerly in line, to feel the clip and hear the buzz, and wear bright sweaters over fuzz.” Author Biography: Teri Sloat is no stranger to sheep and other farm animals; she and her husband have raised many themselves. Ms. Sloat is the author and illustrator of several picture books, in addition to having written two previous books about Farmer Brown. She lives with her husband and youngest daughter in Sebastopol, California. Nadine Bernard Westcott has also raised sheep and lived through the process of making yarn from fleece. Her funny pictures can be found in countless popular picture books, including those about Farmer Brown. She lives on the island of Nantucket in Massachusetts.
