Description

Winner of the Governor General's Award for Illustration, the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award and the 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 has had enough — and he sets out to reclaim what is rightfully his.
