What the Toppsta reviewers think:

‘Simply fantastic! This book is everything any child could need to celebrate World Book Day and develop their love of reading books. Fans of the Oi! series won’t be dissapointed and it’s a brilliant introduction for those that haven’t read the other books yet. Goat finds out that each animal has their own special clothes to dress up in, and some even wear costumes! Leo found the illustrations delightfully hilarious – he couldn’t get over some of the costumes!’ – EB87 read to LA12, age 5

‘We were very excited to read Oi Goat! as we are big fans of the ‘Oi…’ series of books. We already have Oi Frog!, Oi Dog! and Oi Cat! and would highly recommend them. Oi Goat! did not disappoint. It has some amazingly bold and colourful illustrations and a story that will have the whole family laughing out loud’- Amy read to Noah, age 7 and Flynn, age 4

‘What a great book, really nice illustrations and rhyming text make this book perfect for world book day. Frog is teaching goat all about world book day and about what the other animals are dressing up as. My animal loving little boy loved this book. He thought it was very funny too.’ – Luke read to Freddy, age 5

‘I read this book to my four year old, with my eight year old listening over my shoulder.  My little one quite enjoyed the rhyming and the pictures, while Miss 8 got excited at the mention of World Book Day and starting talking about different costumes that SHE might wear this year.  They then giggled a lot and tried to think of things that rhymed that could be costumes for other animals.  Overall, a great bedtime read!’ – Jen read to her children, ages 8 and 4
