When Grandpa offers to do slow magic, Polly can't wait to see the results. But slow magic takes time and lots of patience. First they must wait until Spring comes to plant the grass seeds. Grandpa invites Polly to help herd the sheep out to graze in the field, where they eat Polly's grass, which helps Polly's sheep grow a lovely little lamb and wool. As Autumn comes, Granny slow magics the wool into a jumper - first she dyes it, then she cards and spins it into wool to make a jumper for Polly. All the while, something else has been growing, too, and Polly is proud to be able to tell her new little sister all about slow magic when she is big enough to be patient.
