In a hilarious picture book from bestselling author Ann Patchett and bestselling illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser, a pack of overly confident lambs set out to find a slide made just for them.

On the farm there was a flock of lambs who believed that everything was done especially for them....

So when they overhear Nicolette and the rest of the Farmer family say something about winning a school election by a landslide, they mistakenly hear the word

LAMBSLIDE.

Un-baa-lievable! Could this be? A slide made JUST for lambs?!

With humor, curiosity, and just the right amount of entitlement, the lambs search the entire farm for the special slide. When they can’t spot one, there’s only one thing to do: take a vote!

Ann Patchett and Robin Preiss Glasser have collaborated for the first time to create a book that is an absolute riot! Children and adults will enjoy this sidesplitting play on words as they too anxiously wait to hear the election results: Will the lambs ever get to slide down a lambslide?
