Billy Backfire is the biggest and strongest goat in all of Wet Valley. And in the whole world! All the other goats are crazy about him. But he prefers to wander alone and unhindered. He doesn’t care about butting heads with Buckaroo and the other goats anymore.
’What’s got your goat?’ Buckaroo asks. ’I don’t know!’ Billy Backfire answers, wandering even further away from the herd. He climbs up to the top of Apex Mountain, because it is he who must oversee the sun and wind and rain. Or… does he really just needto buck up and get a grip?
A crazy and exuberant goat picture book from Wet Valley With just a touch of existential identity crisis.
‘Like a breath of fresh air and a huge fart, Hans Sande and Per Dybvig have unleashed Forelska i Feisbukk. A wild, funny and lavish New Norwegian picture book. [...] With help from the playful Per Dybvig, he fizzes until he overflows.’
‘The book offers a lot of fun wordplay to do with billy goats, and the illustrations are equally wonderful. However, it also has its solemn moments. We won’t say anything more about it here, but rather advise adult and child readers alike to curl up on the sofa with it. Parents are encouraged to tear themselves away from their smartphones and instead read aloud about Billy Backfire – reading aloud is greatly underestimated!’
