Summary
The greedy goat runs to the market every day to fill his bag with more and more things, yet when a full bag isn't enough, he starts taking things from the other animals of the forest, in a colorful tale of greed and selfishness.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
"I have mountains of stuff. But that's not enough. I want more, more, more!" chants greedy Ole Goat as he makes his way down the mountain to the market. He is determined to take everything that everyone else has, even though he clearly has plenty and his bag is full! With arrogance and threats, Ole Goat insists that Owl give up his wheelbarrow and Rabbit give up his pots and pans. He greedily stuffs all these things into his bag, and it grows bigger and bigger and bigger. Readers will be amazed at how much the bad-mannered goat fits into his bag!
