Synopsis

The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing by Helen Lester

Not comfortable in her own wool, Ewetopia hides under expensive clothes. Choosing the perfect ensamble for the Costume Ball, she shocks her friends by dressing up as a wolf, but attracts the attention of a handsome stranger who is masquerading (strangely) as a sheep! As they dance across the ballroom, Ewetopia wonders about her mysterious partner: Why is his growl so deep? Why does he have such long, sharp claws? And why does he keep calling her Mother? This empowering story is now part of a fun, value-priced hardcover series about life lessons. It includes downloadable audio and information on the importance of accepting yourself!
