Publisher's Description

The sheep on the farm are sick of getting sheared -- so they decide to go on strike! Things get heated as the rest of the animals start to take sides, eventually leading to a furry, feathery scuffle. But when they all sit down together, the sheep learn how important their wool is to the farm, and the animals come up with a creative solution to everyone’s problem.

This colorful, rollicking story demonstrates the importance of collaboration and teamwork and can lead to a wonderful conversation about the art of compromise.
