Woolbur is different. When all of the other sheep are getting their wool sheared, Woolbur is creating a sculpture. When he's supposed to be spinning wool like the other sheep, Woolbur is riding the spinning wheel like an amusement park ride. Every time Maa and Paa Sheep point out the error of his ways, Woolbur only answers with a 'Isn't it great?'. Maa and Paa are at wit's end trying to figure Woolbur out. Grandpa is the only one that wisely says 'Don't worry'. And in the end, he's the one that's right, as you'll find out when you read this wonderful salute to free spirits every where.
