Pelle's New Suit Edition 2
Pelle has a lamb whose coat grows longer and longer, while Pelle's suit grows shorter! Pelle shears his lamb but he doesn't know what to do next. Pelle offers to do chores and run errands for his family and neighbors in exchange for their help to card, spin, dye, and weave the wool. When the fleece has finally been made a fine blue cloth, Pelle asks one last favor—for the tailor to make it into a smart new suit.
This is a delightful story from the world-renowned Swedish author–illustrator Elsa Beskow which will help young children understand bartering, traditional wool crafts and where our clothes come from.
This wonderful new edition faithfully reproduces Beskow's classic illustrations in a collectable picture book featuring a unique hand-crafted design, premium-quality paper, gold foil signature, and a luxurious cloth spine.
(Ages 3 to 6 years)
