I live in Spokane, WA. I decided to write this rhyming story in 1990 for a project in a school music program. There have been some revisions here and there but I am hoping you will enjoy it. As a mother with two young daughters who are now also mothers I know how exhausted and frustrated a holiday season can be. Maybe mothers and children alike will gain something from reading this book. Oh, I hope so.
Little Lamb is shy and sad because he cannot walk straight and has no friends. But one day, he finds a new friend. Three Legged Lamb, Mama, Papa and all his new friends help Little Lamb to overcome his fears. This is a story of courage and of overcoming our weaknesses and fears.

WHO BETTER THAN A PET DETECTIVE TO EXPOSE A WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING? Things get wild and woolly when Jessica Popper's wedding to longtime fiancé Nick Burby is interrupted by the sound of bloody murder. The sacrificial lamb is the black sheep of the Burby flock, a long-lost relative Nick has never even met. In fact, no one thought Cousin Nathaniel would return to the fold for the event—except his killer. Now, instead of enjoying her honeymoon, Jessie finds herself playing Bo Peep to a growing list of suspects, none with a past as white as snow. All the clues lead to an exclusive private school in Long Island's high-toned Bromptons, where snobby socialites and a smattering of locals on scholarship take classes in African drumming and field trips to Europe. But shearing away the thick fleece of politics, tension, and rivalries reveals a very different animal under the school's progressive appearance. And just when Jess thinks she's about to herd in the killer, she realizes she's being led like a lamb to slaughter…. From the Paperback edition.
