- Shopping Bag ( 0 items )
Two best friends have funny, slice-of-life adventures. In Strawberry Sunglasses , Goat offers to do the grocery shopping. Donkey writes out a list just in case his pal gets in a forgetful "muddle." At the market, Goat is distracted by many wonderful things to buy and instead of bringing home food, he giddily returns with a sun hat, blow-up octopus, trumpet, and strawberry sunglasses. Donkey makes the best of the situation, enjoys the impulse purchases, and then heads back to the market for supper, hand-in-hand with his buddy. In Great Outdoors , Goat decides to take a vacation, but needs advice on where to go. After much negotiation, he announces he wants to go to a place "Just Like Here." He pitches a tent in the garden but soon misses the company of Donkey. They both squish in and enjoy the getaway together. Julian's warm oil paintings capture the sunny dispositions of the characters. Children will enjoy Goat's exuberant innocence and Donkey's patient good humor.
