Uan the Little Lamb

On a remote Scottish island, two children find an abandoned lamb and take her home. They name her Uan, meaning “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 charming story is told through the eyes of two young children.
