Once Upon a Goat
Illustrator: Eric Barclay
Once upon a time, a very prim and proper king and queen begged their fairy godmother for a child. They’d prefer a boy, with glowing skin, bright eyes, and two roses for lips…but any kid will do. When they find themselves gifted with a baby goat (also known as a kid) instead, they can’t imagine how he’ll fit into their lives. But of course, it isn’t long before he’s part of the royal family.
Readers will delight in this story’s hilarity, confusion, and celebration of families that come in every shape and size.
Full-color illustrations were created using pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and Adobe Photoshop.
