Take a funny story about a somewhat helpful goat…

add lots of playful illustrations and you have a children’s book that adults love too.

This book has eye-popping pages: bright colours, polka dots, illustrations spilling out of their borders. Each page weaves words and images together. It’s playful cover to cover. With over 65 illustrations and limited space, the layout required a little out-of-the-box thinking.

This is a Family ReadAloud Book, designed to build child literacy, and encourage families to read together.

After the book went to press, we developed sales tools to help with promotion and publicizing, and became very involved with the U.S. organization ReadAloud.org.
