Spring on the farm means sheep-shearing time! In this enchanting tale, a family of adorable mice learn how sheep fleeces can be dyed, spun, and woven into a blanket. But that wool also looks so soft and inviting to the little mice - surely no one would mind if they take a little for their beds? Featuring the beloved family of mice from The Weaver's Surprise, Tom Knisely spins this yarn of their new adventures. What will happen when the weaver runs out of wool for his blanket? Can his mouse friends replenish his supply in time?

Tom Knisely is a popular weaving teacher, writer, and instructor at the Red Stone Fiber Arts Center in York Haven, Pennsylvania. He is the author of The Weaver's Surprise, as well as many instructional books including Spinning 101, Weaving Rag Rugs, Handwoven Table Linens, Handwoven Baby Blankets, and Huck Lace Weaving Patterns with Color and Weave Effects. Illustrated by Megan Lloyd, the adorable family of mice will win your heart from the very first page.

She lives on a small farm in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, with her husband, sheep, goats, dogs, and cats.
