LUCKY ORPHAN

A quiet little story of a friendship between a little girl and a pet lamb, the puny one of twins, rejected by his mother, and adopted by 11-year old Martha. The slow details of the lamb's growth, of her friendship with a collie, of the doings about the farm where domestic animals and foxes are raised -- season after season -- birth, life and death- and finally the lamb grown up and having a lamb of her own. A sweet-sometimes too sweet --story of Prince Edward Island; a lively looking book -- clear type, soft drawings, good vocabulary for 3rd and 4th graders.
