When Goat offers to do the grocery shopping, Donkey knows that things might just get a little muddled! He writes out a list so that Goat will know exactly what to buy. But the market is such a dazzling place and Goat sees so many lovely things. Instead of apples, carrots, cabbages and ice cream, Goat buys a sun hat, an inflatable octopus, a trumpet and a pair of sunglasses decorated with strawberries! What ever will Donkey make of all the surprises that Goat has in his basket when he trots triumphantly back home? Goodness knows! A delightful duo - Goat and Donkey are ready to entertain children and parents everywhere.
