Woolbur is not like other sheep. He hangs out with wild dogs. He cards his own wool and avoids the shearing barn. He rides the spinning wheel and dyes his wool BLUE. At school, he even weaves his forelock (instead of a potholder)! "Don't worry!" says Grandpaa when Maa and Paa fret that Woolbur is different. When they tell their son to follow the flock, the opposite happens - the flock follows him! Soon everyone is copying his wild hairstyles and taking turns on the spinning wheel. But leave it to Woolbur to find a new way to step ahead of the herd! A refreshing twist on a classic picture book theme, aglow with humor and full of heart.
