What did you like about the book:  A colorful, funny story of Silli and his sheep is sure to entertain young readers.   Silli lives in a meadow and one morning a gust of wind arrives.  It is chilly and he now needs to find sheep to have wool to make yarn and a sweater to keep him warm.  Up on a hill he spots sheep and brings them back down to his meadow.  But their wool is too hard to make a sweater.  The wind comes again the next day and he realizes the ‘sheep’ keep the wind from off him. He creates a hut with the ‘sheep rocks’ that keep out the wind and he dreams of hot chocolate.
