The Adventures of Jellybean
When best friends Rory and Trang become the proud owners of a nanny goat, she turns out to be quite a hoof-ful! Jellybean likes escaping, eating everything under the sun and keeping the neighbours awake at night. Still, the boys think she's the best goat in the world. Especially when she gives them a surprise bigger than they could have ever imagined!
Abaa-rilliant tale suitable for boy and girl readers aged 6+.
This is a delightful story set in semi-rural Australia. I really like that the language and the corny jokes are so similar to our Kiwi humour - any child reading this (or hearing it read aloud) will feel right at home.
There's lots of gentle humour, and nice touches about friendship and family and neighbours. And, of course, the goat.
