We enjoyed this book a lot! It reminded me of Charlie Needs a Cloak by Tomie DePaola; both books show how a wool coat is REALLY made (as in, you start with sheering sheep and slowly progress from there!). I thought Anita Lobel's illustrations were well done and fit with the post WWII time period nicely. This book is a great counterpart to the "must have it now" syndrome affecting most current American children :-).
