Ewetopia is not comfortable in her own wool, and every attempt she makes to impress the other sheep falls flat. So when an invitation to the Woolyones' Costume Ball arives, Ewetopia knows her chance to shine has come at last. After trying on fifty-eight different costumes, she finally finds the perfect one--or so she thinks. But her wolf ensemble turns out to be none too popular with Rambunctious, Ramshackle, and Ramplestiltskin, so Ewetopia finds herself standing all alone again when a stranger enters the room. He is dressed simply as a sheep, but he is so handsome, none of the other sheep notice anything peculiar about his costume choice. Ewecalyptus, Ewetensil, and Heyeywe all look on as the newcomer chooses to dance with none other than Ewetopia. But as they dance across the floor, Ewetopia begins to wonder 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?!!!

The SHEEP WOLF'S CLOTHING HELEN LESTER Illustrated by LYNN MUNSINGER The SHEEP in WOLF'S CLOTHING Ewetopia was not comfortable in her own wool. She always needed to hide in an outfit, and spent a fortune on her clothes. But no one paid any attention. She attempted to dazzle the rams. But Rambunctious, Ramshackle, and Ramplestiltskin barely blinked. She even tried to shock the other ewes. But Ewecalyptus, Ewetensil, and Heyewe hardly noticed. This lack

of attention annoyed Ewetopia like a bad itch. Then one fine day she received an invitation to the Woolyones' Costume Ball. Yes! Here was her chance. She'd have the finest costume in Pastureland and outshine them all. Every fluffy one. Ha! In a frenzy of excitement, Ewetopia tried on fifty-seven costumes. Her clothes-changing muscles were aching-almost worn outwhen she put on outfit number fifty-eight. That settled it. This was the one! Ewereka! She loved the warmth of the fur.

The shine of the fangs. And especially the way the long-clawed paws swung attractively when she walked. Everyone would notice her now! Ewetopia approached the stranger. The stranger approached Ewetopia. From under his sheep costume the newcomer could see the fur, the fangs, and the long, sharp claws. It had to be. In a low, growly voice he exclaimed, "MOTHER!" Mother? Beneath her costume, Ewetopia blinked. Mother? She knitted her eyebrows (a sheep thing). "Mother," growled the

her ex-partner's long, sharp claws and extremely hairy feet. And then it hit her. She had not been dancing with a sheep dressed as a sheep at all. Oh, no. She had been dancing with a real wolf. Big, bad, and mistaking her for his mother! This varmint posed a danger not only to her but to all those in the ballroom. What to do? No time for wooly-brained thoughts. Ewetopia paced in circles. Mother ... mother ... mother ... He thinks I'm his mother! Then she stood up as straight as she

could in her foolish costume, lowered her voice to a growl, and announced, "Sonny dearest, I have a surprise for you." "Surprise!" growled the wolf. He loved surprises and would have squealed with delight, but wolves aren't good at squealing. Ewetopia needed to stall for time, as she hadn't the foggiest idea what the surprise might be.
