The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat


A raucous, rhyming tale that will have children (and adults) in fits of laughter!

But before long, Goat and Stoat’s lively antics make the boat wibble and wobble! Uh-oh! Can Stoat float in the water? And will Goat’s colourful coat be ruined?

From the duo behind the bestselling The Cat and the Rat and the Hat comes this hilarious, read-aloud picture book, bursting with comic capers and animal antics.

Features a hilarious, tongue-twister text, slapstick humour, bright neon artwork and colourful characters.
