Pelle's New Suit mini-edition
A mini gift edition of Elsa Beskow's classic story.
Pelle has a lamb whose coat grows longer and longer, while Pelle's Sunday suit grows shorter!
Pelle shears the lamb, and the wool is carded, spun, dyed and woven. Finally, the tailor makes a new suit for Pelle.
This is a wonderful book to help children understand where their clothes come from and the traditional craft of working with wool.
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children's illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.
Recommended for 3 to 6 years, although the pictures have been known to captivate children as early as 1 year.
Hardcover, 32 pages. 172 x 127 mm. Please note that this book is also available in a larger size edition, but of all of Beskow's books, we find this one to be sweet as a mini-edition.
'Charming. This little book makes you feel all warm inside. It's very cute and the pictures are clear and easy to help explain the story.'
