Synopsis

Little Apple Goat is quite unusual - she loves eating fruit. Every year she waits patiently in the orchard for ripe apples, pears or cherries to fall to the ground. And she always spits the pips and stones over the hedge on her way home to her meadow. Plippety plip! On one day in Autumn, a storm blows across the farm and topples all the fruit trees in the orchard. The animals are all very upset, not least Little Apple Goat! But when Spring comes Little Apple Goat notices blossom showing over the top of the hedge. The animals are delighted to have a new orchard, but who could have planted it? Here's a clue: plippety plip! Featuring the same farm setting as used in Pond Goose and Scruff Sheep, Little Apple Goat tells the story of one eccentric little goat and how her actions - literally - bear fruit after a storm destroys the orchard that she loved so much.
