A mini gift edition of Elsa Beskow's classic story.

Pelle has a lamb whose coat grows longer and longer, while Pelle’s Sunday suit grows shorter! Pelle shears the lamb, and the wool is carded, spun, dyed and woven. Finally, the tailor makes a new suit for Pelle.

This is a wonderful book to help children understand where their clothes come from and the traditional craft of working with wool.

With so many children today disconnected from the origon of the products we consume this is a delightful story with beautiful illustrations of how Pelle shears his lamb and helps with all the steps needed to turn the fleece into a fine new suit.
