Born on a cold winter day, Chilly Billy frolics with the other lambs. They decide to go under the fence and make fun of Billy…even nicknamed him ‘Silly Billy,’ because he wouldn’t follow them. Find out what happens…and why Billy wasn’t so silly after all.

Known for her lessons from nature, Melinda reminds her readers they need to question their choices. It’s easy to “follow the flock,” but sometimes the outcomes are not desirable. The grass is not always greener on the other side. Sue Ann Maxwell Spiker captures the beauty of the story through her artwork.

What People Say

“Having worked with sheep for 65 years, Chilly Billy is a most interesting story that accurately brings alive sheep farm life in the winter and spring in West Virginia.

This book is a good lesson for children (Chilly Billy wasn’t so silly after all).”
