When Star, a very special lamb, is born on a nearby farm, Polly knows that with Star’s wool she can make her ‘finest, divinest, woolliest gift of all’. But the greedy Count and Countess of far-off Woolland have learned about the lamb’s arrival, too, and are determined to add her to their flock.Will the good folk of River John join together to see that Star gets to her rightful home? Will Polly be able to finish her masterpiece? Darka Erdelji’s gorgeous illustrations have just the right amount of whimsy, perfectly capturing the spirit of Fitch’s touching yarn.Divided into nine short sections, this is a grand book to share aloud, or read alone. It will appeal to children of all ages. And to knitters, weavers, spinners and the warm-hearted everywhere.
