Woolbur′s list of Do′s and Don′ts:

DO express yourself creatively

DON′T worry if you weave your forelock into a pot holder!

DO march to your own beat

DON′T worry when Maa and Paa tell you to stay with the herd!

DO be bold and brave

DON′T be afraid to BE YOURSELF!

Woolbur is not like other sheep. He hangs out with wild dogs, cards his own wool to avoid the shearing barn, and even dyes his wool blue. "Don′t worry!" says Grandpaa when Maa and Paa fret that Woolbur is different. But 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. Leave it to Woolbur to find a new way to step ahead of the herd.

Spunky, funky, and refreshingly distinct, Woolbur will strike a chord with anyone who′s ever felt different. And that′s all of us!

Woolbur has trouble with shearing (he likes being wooly), carding (he tries carding wool while it’s still on his body), spinning (he’d rather ride the spinning wheel) and weaving (he weaves his own forelock into his art project).

He inspires the other sheep to run with the dogs, card their wool on their bodies, and spin crazy yarns just like him.
