Have you heard of the New York Sate Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY?

It’s the largest sheep and wool festival in the country, full of wooly fun activities for adults and children!  Here’s the link to the festival: NYS Sheep and Wool Festival which will take place on October 19th and 20th.

I will be there both days for storytimes and booksigning.

If you are planning to attend the festival, then you have a chance to  win a signed copy of Baa Baa Black Sheep! 

Baa Baa cover 9-2013

In this book,  animals ask the sheep for things she can’t give them: Kittens ask for milk, a horse asks for hay, a pig asks for slop.

2- Draw a picture of a sheep wearing a wooly hat and scarf.

Come to the Merritt Books booth in Building B during the hours below to meet me and submit your entry. Include your name, mailing address, phone or e-mail and to whom you would like the book inscribed.

  1. Can’t wait to see you at the festival, Iza!

  2. Hi Iza,
    Oh how I wish I lived in New York. Just think, I could meet two of my favorite authors. You and Susanna. And sheep are my most favorite animals. My house is full of sheep (not real ones) and spinning wheels of every size and shape imaginable. I have Susanna’s book, but I shall be buying a copy of Baa, Baa, Black Sheep. Is it better for you if I purchase it from your site or on Amazon?
    And congratulations on your newest book. You truly inspire the artist in me. 🙂
    P.S. Have fun Susanna. 🙂

    • Iza Trapani says:

      Tracy, we would both love to see you ! Your house sounds very cozy with all those sheep and spinning wheels. Are you a knitter too? Thanks so much for getting my book. That is SO nice of you!! I don’t sell of my website , so it will have to be off Amazon, or some other bookseller. And thanks for the kind words about inspiring you. I am glad! xox

  3. Yes, I’m a knitter, but haven’t had time for many years. I’ll pop on over to Amazon today. Again have fun with Susanna. 🙂

  4. Cathy says:

    I don’t have any new puns, but I am sure ewe wool have a great time at the festival!

    Still wishing it were the Sheep and Wine Festival I think because it is in “RHINE”beck so I think of Rhine wine and a lovely, lazy German river cruise…

    • Iza Trapani says:

      I know what you mean, Cathy. It’s getting harder to find puns that aren’t wooly baad. Sheep and wine sounds great! I like the way you think!

  5. BBF, I wish I was going. But that would be one heck of a drive. All th way from Black Mountain NC to NY. WOWEEEE!

    I KNOW you’ll have fun and you and Susanna meet up for lunch. You two can discuss how your day is going.

    I would love to do that one year. XOXO
