Let me tell you the tale of Alfonzo the goat,
who was terribly proud of his lovely new coat.
Alfonzo was happy; he pranced and he skipped.
Then he heard a sad noise, croaking out of a ditch.

When Alfonzo the goat discovers a host of creatures who need help, he doesn't hesitate. Using his precious, much-loved coat, he finds ways to solve their problems - fashioning a boat for frogs out of a cuff, for instance. But soon he's down to the last thread and it's started to snow... What will he do?

A really fun, rhyming story about a very generous goat, celebrating friendship and kindness, with extremely cute illustrations by Christine Pym.
