About as slight as a book can become; the author-artist's Sleepy People was substantial by comparison. Brookie has a little lamb. She teaches him to sing but all he can sing is, Baa baa baa; she teaches him to read but all he can read is, Baa baa baa. She gives him a music book with songs that he can sing (encore) and books that he can read (ditto). ""Brookie loved her little lamb and she scratched him behind his ears. The little lamb said * * * and snuggled close to her."" It has an elfin charm, especially in the line drawings, but oh so evanescent.
