Woolf is half wolf and half sheep. He shaves his wool to fit in with the wolves, but soon gives up doing that. He flattens his ears to fit in with the sheep, but it grows too uncomfortable. When his parents find him upset, they assure him he is something special and can just be himself. Which he finally does, finding friends in other places.

Picture Book

There are rats moving into the building. The Rabbits are very excited! But as they bounce down floor by floor, their enthusiasm is swayed by other’s niggles, and then negative comments, and then wild rumours. No one wants rats in the building!

But then they meet the new neighbours. Tidy, clean, well-mannered and best of all, cake-baking rats. Yay! There are rats in the building!

Clever story about not listening to other’s whispers, or rumours, and making your own decisions.
