From Goats Gruff to Glory’ is one of the funniest novels to appear in 2013. Find out how lazy, stinky Eric the Troll is discovered by a female troll more formidable than the Iron Lady herself, is forced into marriage, uprooted from his bridge, and transformed into a successful citizen and a local hero.
Here you’ll discover an exotic world full of strange characters from Boris the Spider with a head for PR and copyrighting to ‘Cheesy‘ Spread, a chimpanzee with a whole raft of dodgy business enterprises including a media empire that aspires to rival News International. And don’t forget Roger a young goat with a personal fortune built on a goat sponsorship scam, and you have a book you just can’t put down.
Targeted Age Group: Middle Grade (8 to adult)
‘From Goats Gruff to Glory’ is based on a made up story I told to my own children. I have a passion for creative writing and story telling.
I originally trained as a physicist, I spent much of my life working in engineering, electronics, communications, computer based systems and product marketing. More recently I’ve moved into education and training. I’m a qualified science teacher (with a fear of children) and work for a large corporation as a lead training analyst.
