He is the first in a series called The Stuff Kids. If you love Woollard and want learn a little bit about wool, there are printed books available and a few accessories for kids, parents and teachers. In each story of happy-go-lucky curiosity, the stitched illustrations turn around a piece of red wool felt that is attached to the center page of the book.
