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!
