A charming never before published story, written and illustrated by Don Freeman the author of Corduroy bear, about a silly goat who discovers Miss Phipps' "delicious" watercolor paints and covers her fur in a brilliant "blaze of colors" as she nibbles away at the irresistible pastes. What will farmer Mac Duff think?

Glad to see this story published!
