Bully Goat Grim: A Maynard Moose Tale

Bully Goat Grim: A Maynard Moose Tale

by Willy Claflin

This hilarious Maynard Moose tale, as retold by master storyteller Willy Claflin, takes us on another whimsical journey with the misadventures of a Bully Goat who suffers from Random Hostility Syndrome. The Bully Goat clashes with a three headed troll “fambly” and is undone by a baby girl troll when she suddenly realizes that “everybody ought to mess with him!” Her inspiration leads to a confrontation with the Bully Goat using only a pillow and three raggedy old bed sheets. After she cleverly outwits the Bully Goat, all of the forest animals follow her example and the threat of the bully is eliminated. Fortunately, everyone lives happily for “never afterwords” except for the Bully Goat, since nobody likes a “dubnoxious beastly”. A Moose-English Glossary is included, along with Hoofnotes to help guide you through the translation. This latest fractured fairy tale from the Piney Woods marks the third collaboration from the creative team who brought you the 2011 Texas Bluebonnet Award winning book, The Uglified Ducky, and the award winning Rapunzel and the Seven Dwarfs. James Stimson has worked his magic once again with his eclectic stylized illustrations that depict the humor of the offbeat trolls and capture the joy of the forest animals inhabiting the Piney Woods.
