Baabwaa and Wooliam

Baabwaa and Wooliam

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, recognizes their new acquaintance: the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing! The wolf is so flattered to discover his literary reputation precedes him that he stops trying to eat Baabwaa and Wooliam. And a discovery by the sheep turns the encounter into an unexpected friendship.

This picture book was written in nearby New Hampshire and illustrated in a studio right here in Maine. Raising Readers likes to "graduate" their readers at age 5 with a book by a Maine creator and with the reassurance that their library offers hundreds of picture books for them to take home. Just like Baabwaa and Wooliam and their new friend the wolf, books will open up a world to new ideas and new friendships.
