Woolbur

Woolbur”

Woolbur doesn’t think or behave like the rest of the flock. He does things his way.

“I carded my own wool,” said Woolbur. “No more tangles.” 

“It’s unheard of!” said Maa.  “I know,” said Woolbur. “Isn’t great?”

His parents don’t understand him. “You must follow the flock, dear. It’s what sheep do.”

Instead Woolbur teaches the other sheep a different way of doing things.

This book promotes humor, creative thinking, taking risks and originality.
