This fantasy picture book is the story of a tiny motherless lamb, her adventures, and how she is given her very odd name. It's the story of her human "stepmothers," who draw and paint the little lamb, and how the lamb sees herself as she learns many life lessons. Based on the story of a real sheep in northern California, it features her relationships with other animals, a vineyard, and her beautiful wool. A special readership for the book may be adopted and / or foster children who can identify with the sheep...and all children may be encouraged to see what is special or beautiful about themselves. With watercolor, acrylic, and watercolor pencil illustrations in a variety of styles by a variety of artists. 

PEGGY HUTH, author/artist, lives in the Sierras in California surrounded by the forest and animals that share that magical space with her. Part of a local group of artists, she is also represented in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. This is her first children's book.

BRYAN CANNIFF, designer,works in New York, where he has created many books and magazines for publishers such as Hearst, McGraw-Hill, and the Museum of Modern Art. He was a design consultant on the children's picture book series, NEIGHBORS.
