Written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola. First edition, 1989. G. P. Putnam's Sons. New York.

"Winter is over at Fiddle-Dee-Dee Farms, and the Woolsey lambs can't wait to run and jump and play in the fields outside. But first they have their spring haircuts - clip, clip, clip. Then the next morning they wish they hadn't had those haircuts so soon, for the fields are covered in snow. But Granny has been busy all night, and her surprise solutions save the day."

Tomie dePaola (1934 - 2020) was an American writer and illustrator who created more than 260 children's books, including Strega Nona, one of his most beloved books. He was born in Meriden, Connecticut and studied art at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He taught art at various colleges and retired from teaching in 1978 to focus on his books. He received many awards for his work, including the Children's Literature Legacy Award in 2011.
