Renowned author Ann Patchett teams up with the illustrator of the Fancy Nancy books for this charming story about three lambs. When they mistakenly overhear “lambslide” they are determined to create one at their farm. A gentle story on how to accomplish a big dream while considering the impact on those around them.— Jamie
“Oh, what a joyful, playful story! Life on the farm can seem a little dull, but when the lambs hear ‘lambslide’ instead of ‘landslide’ by mistake, it becomes the talk of the farm. Getting the votes of the animals and the farmers leads to a cooperative effort to build the best lambslide ever! Great illustrations make this story special. Patchett and Glasser are a dynamic duo for sure.”

From the international bestselling author of Bel Canto and Commonwealth, Ann Patchett, and the bestselling illustrator of the Fancy Nancy series, Robin Preiss Glasser, comes a hilarious children’s story about a slide made just for lambs.
Nicolette Farmer is running for class president, and the rest of the Farmer family tells her she’ll win by a landslide. A pack of overconfident lambs mistakenly hear lambslide and can’t believe there’s a slide made just for them. But when they can’t find one on the farm, there’s only one thing left to do: take a vote!
They campaign. They bargain. They ask all the other animals if they, too, would like a lambslide.
Will the lambs ever get their special slide?
