Created for World Book Day, the next hilarious rhyming picture book from award-winning Kes Gray and Roald Dahl Funny Prize winner Jim Field, following the bestselling Oi Frog!, Oi Dog! and Oi Cat!

Dogs put on clogs,
'Gators dress as waiters,
And ants put on pants!

Frog turns stylist in this boisterous picture book, making all the animals put on their glad rags for World Book Day. But will everyone be as fashion forward as Frog?

Praise for Oi Frog!:
'An absolute treat.' - Daily Mail
'Everyone will love it.' - Guardian

Oi Goat is a beautifully illustrated little book about a range of different animals dressing up for World Book Day.  Goat does not see why he has to dress up as he already has a nice long shaggy goat but Frog, with the help of other animals, soon puts Goat right.  The only out of place reference is the line ‘Otters dress as Harry Potters’ as the age of the children reading this book (1-5 I would suggest) are unlikely to have heard of Harry Potter.  Otherwise a lovely book.

Simply fantastic! This book is everything any child could need to celebrate World Book Day and develop their love of reading books. Fans of the Oi! series won't be dissapointed and it's a brilliant introduction for those that haven't read the other books yet. Goat finds out that each animal has their own special clothes to dress up in, and some even wear costumes! Leo found the illustrations delightfully hilarious - he couldn't get over some of the costumes!

A fun "World Book Day" special for the "oi XXX!" series - where all the characters get dressed up in appropriate rhyming clothing. Sophie (4.5yrs) really enjoyed the buffalo dressed as a gruffalo, with his costume finished off with a green tennis ball on his nose !! I liked that she picked up on the detail and the rather "heath robinson" gruffalo wart - it appealed to me too !!  She also had praise for the llama in a suit of armour who she felt had "gone to a lot of effort". She also liked the way Frog as ever managed to be the one that "gets away" with a rules bend - he doesnt get dressed up, he's "the prince who gets turned into a frog" which doesnt rhyme per the rules. It's a great little book for explaining about World Book Day, and has certainly given my daughter some ideas about who she could go as.

Our five year old chose this book for World Book Day as he loves his Oi Frog book. This special World Book Day version did not disappoint, even I laughed at the story. I thought it would be very similar to Oi Frog, but it is a brilliant book in its own right. A great way to get children to become aware of rhyme, and inspire them to come up with their own. Illustrations are really fun too. Brilliant.

We love this series of books and this will be a great introduction to the series for anyone who has not read these books before. 

The story rhymes and this time goat is introduced to the fun things that happen on World Book Day. There are many different animals which are brilliantly illustrated.  We particularly like the ptarmigans wearing cardigans.

We were very excited to read Oi Goat! as we are big fans of the 'Oi...' series of books. We already have Oi Frog!, Oi Dog! and Oi Cat! and would highly recommend them. Oi Goat! did not disappoint. It has some amazingly bold and colourful illustrations and a story that will have the whole family laughing out loud. In this book Frog is trying to tell Goat everything about 'World Book Day'. He explains that all the animals like to dress up for 'World Book Day' and some make more effort than others. Our personal favourite was 'Buffaloes dressed as Gruffalos'. The illustrations in the book are amazing and add so much to the storyline and humour. The animals expressions are fantastic and I personally had a soft spot for the otters dressed as Harry Potters (they are so cute). If you are already a fan of this series don't hesitate to pick up Oi Goat! If you have never heard of the 'Oi..' books pick this up now and enjoy. It will definitely make you smile.

What a great book, really nice illustrations and rhyming text make this book perfect for world book day. Frog is teaching goat all about world book day and about what the other animals are dressing up as. My animal loving little boy loved this book. He thought it was very funny too.

Essential World Book day reading!! This is one to bring out every year for EYFS, and KS1 especially.  The focus is on our favourite frog (Oi Frog) and of course, the cat and the dog, and welcoming back the goat who sits on coats.  This time, it’s about dressing up and wearing things! So the frog asks the goat to put on the coat. Very funny and clever.
With references to the Gruffalo, Harry Potter and Where’s Wally, it really does coincide well with World Book Day. 

Oh and it’s pronounced Tarmigans ;-)

Absolute genius! ‘Otters dressed as Harry potters’ was the killer line for us! More hilarious rhymes and new characters to meet with an ending that will leave you in tears (of laughter) haha this book is brilliant and an absolute bargain at £1 (world book day special)

What a wonderful world book day treat! We love the ‘oi’ Series and weren’t quite sure what to expect from this one being that it was a free copy, but we certainly weren’t disappointed!! Summer and Millie loved the children’s book dressing up themes, and it’s given us some ideas for next years WBD!

We've already read Oi Frog and Oi Cat so were hoping for more of the same humour and catchy rhymes and we weren't disappointed. My five year old loved the World Book Day theme and found the story funny with lovely illustrations. A great choice for younger children for this year's World Book Day.

Massive hit in our house! Another spin off from oi frog but it’s just as brilliant! Slight twist is that it’s not about where animals are meant to sit but what they are meant to dress up as on world book day! Omg I laughed so hard at the ending, this is a gem of a book that every household needs!!!

I was worried that the 'Oi' series was going to go the way of the 'That's not my' series and become omnipresent. I was mainly worried because we are such big fans of Oi Frog that I didn't want anything to ruin it. However on reading Oi Goat we were pleasantly surprised as is more of a companion piece than an additional book in the series. It focuses on dressing up for World Book Day and my daughter actually laughed out loud in places. The rhyming was in the same funny and silly vein as the previous books - we really enjoyed it and it inspired us to talk about outfits for World Book Day.

This book is brilliant! We have oi dog and I saw this Oi goat for world book day. It's funny, yet short which is good as my little one is only 2! We have read many many times and it keeps my little one's attention!

I read this book to my four year old, with my eight year old listening over my shoulder.  My little one quite enjoyed the rhyming and the pictures, while Miss 8 got excited at the mention of World Book Day and starting talking about different costumes that SHE might wear this year.  They then giggled a lot and tried to think of things that rhymed that could be costumes for other animals.  Overall, a great bedtime read!

Read this to my smallest son. He liked the story as it is rhyming and he is learning this at school.
He liked that the frog is teaching the goat about World Book Day. Great pictures.

We love this series as a family so OiGoat was at the top of our list . The illustrations are great as before but the dialogue is a bit disappointing.
