Description
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.
