I blogged the other day about goat herding on World Book Day. Seemed like a good opportunity to make a little trailer for THE GOGGLE-EYED GOATS.

Meanwhile, back in London, a goat party was taking place. Look out for Christine Baker, editorial director of Gallimard Jeunesse, better known as the woman who brought Harry Potter to France!

One thought on “THE GOGGLE-EYED GOATS book trailer”

  1. Congratulations Steve!

    I thought it was pretty interesting when I first saw the artwork that the goats had quite delicate, although certainly large, eyes, rather than the bulging eyes that sprung to my mind when I heard “goggle-eyed”. Having seen that the French translation is “Les chèvres aux yeux doux” (roughly “The soft-eyed goats”), it all makes sense 🙂

    I certainly can’t think of a good French word for goggle-eyed; is that the reason “doux” was chosen?
