Lambslide Summary

Lambslide by Ann Patchett

From the international bestselling author of Bel Canto and Commonwealth, Ann Patchett, and the bestselling illustrator of the Fancy Nancy series, Robin Preiss Glasser, comes a hilarious children's story about a slide made just for lambs.

Nicolette Farmer is running for class president, and the rest of the Farmer family tells her she'll win by a landslide. A pack of overconfident lambs mistakenly hear lambslide and can't believe there's a slide made just for them. But when they can't find one on the farm, there's only one thing left to do: take a vote!

They campaign. They bargain. They ask all the other animals if they, too, would like a lambslide.

Will the lambs ever get their special slide?

Find out in this epic collaboration between Patchett and Glasser, who create the perfect children's book.

Lambslide Reviews

A good story about cooperation-and the democratic process. - Kirkus Reviews Patchett's first children's book is pleasantly old-fashioned, with some modern touches... - Kirkus Reviews [Glasser's] art amiably captures the daily milieu of farm life, from piglets cheerfully rolling in the muck to farmers chucking hay bales to Nicolette's daydreaming under dappled leaves and swaying branches. - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books [Patchett's] gentle humor [respects] the whimsy of childhood. - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Award-winning adult author Patchett makes her picture-book debut with this feel-good story, stuffed with tips on how to solve a problem and execute a plan. - Booklist And what a slide it is! It's a stunning success... - Booklist A fun way to introduce the concepts of campaigning and voting to young readers. - School Library Journal
