The Lovereading4Kids comment

Goat and donkey are an absolutely delightful duo that readers will instantly warm to and be entertained by. With strong characterisation, wacky and unpredictable storyline, offbeat humour and a great strength of friendship between the two characters, this picture book sets itself above many others. Goat and Donkey and the Great Outdoors is available in paperback as is Goat and Donkey in Strawberry Sunglasses.

Synopsis

Goat And Donkey And The Noise Downstairs by Simon Puttock

One night, Goat is woken by a noise downstairs. His immediate thought is that there must be burglars in the house. He doesn't know what to do, but he knows that Donkey will , so he tiptoes very quietly to Donkey's room. But when Goat discovers that Donkey's bed is empty, he comes to the conclusion that Donkey must have been stolen ! Full of fear and trepidation, Goat grabs Donkey's toy Rabbity (to brandish at the burglars), goes downstairs, and bursts bravely into the kitchen. . . only to find that the noise is in fact coming from Donkey who has gone downstairs to make himself a sandwich! Relieved but overwrought, Goat is in need of some comfort and a midnight feast with Donkey is just the thing to soothe his shattered nerves!
