Goat and Donkey and the Noise Downstairs

Goat and Donkey are best friends. Goat is rather nervous, but Donkey is super-brave. In this little tale we find out what happens when Goat hears a mysterious noise in the middle of the night. Is he brave enough to go and find his friend Donkey and investigate?

Goat sums up all his courage and does exactly that. The twist in the tale is lovely, but what makes this book rather special is the sumptuous colourful illustrations by Russell Julian. Goat and Donkey are great animal characters and children will be on the edge of their seats (or their beds) wondering what will happen at the turn of every page. 

Lovely stuff.
