Delilah is a lamb, a very special lamb. She's frisky and mischievous and she's Red's best friend. Ever since she came to the farm, Red's life has changed. The two are never apart. Each morning they eat breakfast and then Delilah helps Red with all the farm work. They even ride the tractor together. Red has never had so much fun. He can't wait for spring when a dozen full-grown sheep will be delivered. But Red's about to find out the hard way that Delilah's one of a kind.

In this gently told tale of friendship and belonging, John Bemelmans Marciano introduces a delightful new character, destined to be a favorite of children everywhere.

See more books from this Author
Author and illustrator John Bemelmans Marciano is the grandson of award-winning writer Ludwig Bemelmans. John discovered an unfinished manuscript for a children's story featuring Bemelmans' beloved picture-book heroine Madeline while rummaging through his late relative's memorabilia. Although Marciano had never met his grandfather, who passed away in 1962, he was well aquinted with his grandfather's six "Madeline" books and Bemelmans' engaging artwork. Madeline in America, and Other Holiday Tales is based on Bemelman's unfinished manuscript, "Madeline's Christmas in Texas," completed and illustrated by Marciano. Basing his illustrations on the pencil sketches left by his grandfather, Marciano completes the story of Madeline who, with teacher Miss Clavel and the other eleven girls from her school in Paris, travels to Texas after she inherits a cattle ranch, gold mines, and oil wells. Including two other stories by Bemelmans, Madeline in America, and Other Holiday Tales also features an essay by Marciano's mother, Barbara Bemelmans, describing Christmas festivities in her artistic father's home. His title Madeline at the White House made Publisher's Weekly best seller list in 2011.

Life on the farm was lonely and hard for Red, at least until a sweet lamb named Delilah came along to change everything.
