Book 20 of my Goodreads Challenge 2019

'Lola the sheep had extraordinary wool, it was shiny, it was silky, it was soft, and it never, ever tangled.'

Lola is very proud and happy of the way she looks, but then come summer all the sheep have a hair cut and Lola feels ridiculous and hides herself away. All she wants is to have her beautiful wool back.

Oh yes it does come back, but it is all wild, messy and tangled so she keeps herself away from the others. Whilst resting below a tree an egg falls from a nest, Lola does not even notice but the wild warmth of the wool protects it and soon a bright baby chick is born. The two become great friends.

As the chick becomes stronger and summer approaches the pair must part ways, and Lola realises it is more important to have friends than to have extraordinary wool.

A beautiful picture book with bright fun illustrations, great to read with little ones.
