Pure Wool by Gregor Addison

This is a really great book for kids, 12 plus, I would say. It examines harsh topics like ethnic cleansing and racism in the form of a modern fable. A well written book, it features the clash between the white-face sheep and the black-face sheep. It succeeds, in my opinion, on many levels and would make an ideal teaching aid in schools, not only here in the UK, but elsewhere.
