Morris, the fun-loving lamb disregards all rules and warnings of danger and finds a place where he escapes from the safety of the pen. Looking for greener grass, Morris puts himself in a dangerous place, where Flow (wolf spelled backwards) is waiting to snatch the carefree lamb. The good Shepherd, Norm risks all to rescue this lost little sheep.
Listening and doing what is expected can be challenging. Morris, the fun-loving lamb, believes life is more exciting outside the pen. He disregards the rules that Norm, the shepherd presents to the herd that morning. Morris also ignores all the warnings from Norm, his sheep friends and his new found companion, Bo Peep. Finding a place where the fence post has fallen down, Morris jumps over the broken fence and escapes the safety of the pen to find what he thinks is greener grass. Morris is totally unaware of the dangers and he ignores surroundings to satisfy his own wishes. The wolf, whose name is Flow (wolf spelled backwards), lurks around the fence line of the pen and is ready to snatch this carefree lamb. Thankfully the good Shepherd is always guarding his sheep and is mindful of where they are at all times. Norm the shepherd, our hero in the story, is willing to do what is needed to rescue his beloved sheep, Morris. What a glorious day it is when Morris is brought back safely to the pen and the herd. Hopefully Morris has learned a valuable lesson about listening and following rules.
