The Lovereading4Kids comment
Nominated for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010. A wonderfully funny and touching story of friendship from the comic wordsmith Jeanne Willis and brilliantly brought to life with wacky and laugh-out-loud illustrations from Tony Ross.
The Nanny Goat's Kid by Jeanne Willis
There was once a Nanny Goat who wanted kids more than anything in the world, but she couldn't have any of her own. Adopting seems like the perfect solution, but the kid she adopts is different to the others - in fact, he's a tiger cub! But the Nanny Goat doesn't care. When her mistrustful sisters kick her kid out of the herd, she resolutely stands by him, and her trust in him is repaid when he saves not just her but also his cousins from becoming a hungry tiger's dinner!
'The Nanny Goat’s Kid shows Tony Ross and Jeanne Willis at their comic best.. The genius of Ross and Willis is that while their work is juvenile in the best possible way, it also speaks to the adult over the child’s shoulder'- The Telegraph
