Baabwaa and Wooliam

By David Elliott
Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

A hilarious tale of learning to read, dental hygiene and unlikely friendship 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, thinks he recognizes their new acquaintance ... could it be the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing?

  • Adventure, literacy, knitting ... what's not to love?
  • Just the right balance of very dry humour and laugh-out-loud silliness
  • Absolutely delectable illustrations by Melissa Sweet, the illustrator of Firefly July
