Meet Huck. He loves flowers. FLOWERS, FLOWERS, FLOWERS. And he'll do whatever it takes to get a mouthful: climb the highest mountain, walk a tightrope, even defy speeding trains! It's true, he can't resist! But when his mad dash up a church spire is mistaken for a heroic attempt to save Mrs. Spooner's flowery hat (rather than a determined effort to eat it), Huck has a crisis of conscience. Can anything deter this goat from his gastronomical bliss?
For fans of Skippyjon Jones and Click, Clack, Moo comes an all-purpose, year-round kid-pleaser that will have kids shouting, laughing, and clapping along. This goofy goat also advocates a subtle lesson in setting aside your own desires for the greater good of others. With a heart to rival his appetite (and that's a BIG appetite!), Huck is not to be missed.

Huck, a mountain goat with a taste for flowers and very stylish beard, goes into town looking for his favorite treats. He causes trouble of one kind and another, but when all of the townspeople are encouraging him to rescue a lady's floral hat from a high rooftop, will he save it, or eat it? Huck's antics are sure to get a giggle from young readers (and possibly older ones, as well)!
