They sheared my coat, and spun soft wool
And knitted socks for Sammy.
Every so often, some sends you the most amazing thing in the world.

This is one of those very times, as this book is absolutely incredible and about a wee little dog. A very special wee little dog with super soft fur everyone compares to fleece, so like a sheep he is shorn so his fur can be made into wool which will be knit into items for soldiers at war.
Thanks so much, Erica! You are awesome.
