The Nanny Goat's Kid
Publisher: Andersen Press
The tiger cub is different to the other Kids and the sisters criticise the way Nanny Goat is bringing him up. When their Kids begin to disappear they point the finger at the tiger cub and banish him from the family, but Nanny Goat stands by him and the tiger cub saves the day.
Strong themes of family values, acceptance and tolerance are all explored with humour and pathos in this witty tale of the power of mother love from the popular writer and illustrator team Ross and Willis.
