Meet one Grumpy Goat.
He's cranky, he's hungry, and he's never had a friend.
He is making a terrible mess at Sunny Acres Farm, and the other animals just stay away.
He knocks over the pigs' trough, kicks down the garden fence, and eats everything in his path.
Until one special flower stops him in his tracks.
And once Goat opens his eyes, his heart is soon to follow.
See how stopping to smell the flowers really can change everything.
Brett Helquist's celebrated art has graced books from the charming Bedtime for Bear, which he also wrote, to the New York Times bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket to the glorious picture book adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.
