Synopsis

Uan the Little Lamb by Sandra Klaassen

On a remote Scottish island, two children find an abandoned lamb and take her home. They call her 'Uan', which means 'lamb' in Gaelic. Slowly the lamb grows up and they love playing with her and taking her everywhere. What will happen when she becomes a sheep? Sandra Klaassen depicts the Outer Hebrides in drawings brimming with life and her love of the landscape and people. This is a charming story told through the eyes of two young children.

Reviews

'A tremendously sweet story... The pictures are so well structured. It has a lovely ending too. I can see we are going to read this one a few more time today already! 5/5'

.co.uk member review 'A wonderful bedtime story suitable for ages three upwards.

--The Green Parent, Jan 2007 '...the book opens in a lovely descriptive manner... the appeal of this straightforward book is in the disarming charm of the illustrations... it's a lovely book.

--Chris Brown, School Librarian, Winter 2006. '...Little ones will love finding out what happens next in this gorgeous picture book that makes a perfect stocking filler.

--Wave magazine, Dec 2006 'This is a delight of a book to share with the very young -- a simple story, charmingly told... [Five Stars]

--Books For Keeps, November 2006 'The simple story of Uan...will appeal to the very young, both boys and girls...The text and pictures...share the story equally...neither dominating the other.

--Anne Gannon, Inis, the Children's Books Ireland magazine, Winter 2006 'This is a book that asks to be read and re-read. It's the perfect present; the special treat.

--Leopard Magazine, Nov 2006 'Klaassen's simple, atmospheric pictures spill between pages and around the text bringing little Uan's character and the joy of her carers to life ... A delightful spring story.

--Mel Tibbs, Juno, Spring/Summer 2007
