A Goat Called Curry - West African Dwarf Goat - African Picture Book - Black Childrens Book

Last year, I wrote a children’s book.  My very first picture book.  And it’s called A Goat Called Curry.

Although I had written two other children’s books (The Day I Will Never Forget and The Hairy Crown of Mr. Adesoji), those were actually Chapter Books, i.e. for older children/more advanced readers.

I am very pleased to announce that A Goat Called Curry is available for pre-order on Amazon.  It goes live for sale on February 17, 2018.

As you might have guessed, I can’t draw.  So, the beautiful colorful illustrations in this book were created by Svitlana Liuta.

Here’s the summary:

A heartwarming tale of the friendship between a little girl and her mischievous pet goat.


Six-year-old Mofolusho lives with her parents on a farm on the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria. She is an expert at doing the opposite of what her parents tell her not to do. Not only does she hide when they need help with chores around the house, she also does whatever she wants.


But one night, a goat arrives on their doorstep and everything changes.


Mrs. Farmer has a habit of naming animals after ingredients she lacks in her kitchen. So, it’s no wonder that her daughter’s pet goat is named Curry.


Eventually, the pet goat becomes as naughty as Mofolusho, forcing Mrs. Farmer to make a decision. Will she choose to make a Curry goat recipe or spare the naughty goat?


Told with wit and humor, this charming story of a little girl and her mischievous four-legged sidekick is bound to delight children and adults.


This beautiful picture book celebrates the love and friendship that exists between children and their pets and the positive influences one can have on the other. It also features an unforgettable secondary cast of characters which lovers of Caribbean food and African cuisine will recognize including Scotch Bonnet Pepper and Allspice.


Packed with full color illustrations, this heartwarming African children’s story is a great read aloud for family time, bedtime, nap time, bath time or anytime for preschool children, beginner readers, and especially for children 4 – 8 years old.

A Goat Called Curry is available as an eBook and Paperback on Amazon.  I will update this page with links to more online bookstores too.  So, watch this space.  🙂
