Welcome to the flock.
The flock has been ‘the flock’ since the beginning of time. Or since last Tuesday. Whichever came first.
When a new sheep joins the flock, she realises that home can be warm and safe and good.
But what happens when the new sheep decides to leave?
A hilariously subversive tale about bravery, independence, and that first bold step away from the crowd.
