The Lovereading4Kids comment

Goat and donkey are an absolutely delightful duo who share many a comedic experience and will entertain children and parents everywhere with their antics. Very strong characterization will give readers the immediate feeling of knowing the two characters, the offbeat humour will have you laughing throughout and the strength of friendships between the two shines through perfectly.


Goat and Donkey in Strawberry Sunglasses by Simon Puttock

When Goat offers to do the grocery shopping, Donkey knows that things might just get a little muddled! He writes out a list so that Goat will know exactly what to buy. But, the market is such a dazzling place. Instead of apples, carrots, cabbages and ice cream, Goat buys a sun hat, a trumpet and a pair of sunglasses decorated with strawberries.
