Overview

It's bedtime, but Woolly the little lamb can't find his mother. Who will tuck him in? "I will, I will," said Mrs. Cow. "Don't you worry. I know how. Everything will be all right. I'll tuck you in real snug and tight." But Mrs. Cow wraps poor Woolly up so tight that he can't move. "STOP!" cries Woolly. "That's not right! Oh, who will tuck me in tonight?" Mrs. Cat, Mrs. Horse, Mrs. Pig, and Mrs. Duck all try, but their efforts prove disastrous, and Woolly grows more and more desperate.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Wooly is a little lamb who really wants to go to sleep, but he cannot find his mother who always tucks him in. Various mothers offer their assistance. Mrs. Cow makes the bedcovers so tight he feels like a wrapped mummy. Mrs. Cat's kisses are just not the same as she licks his entire face. Mrs. Horse offers a big hug, and Mrs. Pig brings a pail of slops as a bed time snack. At each of these well meaning gestures, Wooly cries "No, no… That's not right. Oh, who will tuck me in tonight?" It will be no surprise to anyone that mama finally arrives and makes things right for her little Wooly, who is finally able to head off for a goodnight's sleep. The outlandish costumes on the animals, all the items to look at and the little mice perched and observing it all, will delight young ones. This is a board book brimming with charm and a very happy reassuring conclusion. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
