PB’s Comet

  Author:   Marnie Parsons  
  Artist :   Veselina Tomova    
  Publisher:  Running the Goat

PB spends her summer on Fox Island with the other sheep and goats, but she’s more interested in stargazing than nibbling on the grass. She knows a famous astronomer once visited Toads Cove, and has set her sights on following in his path and finding a comet, even though the others on the island think she’s foolish. Her determination irks a cantankerous old goat who plots to undermine her efforts.

This playful poetic tale about a lamb who won’t give up and an old goat who learns a thing or two is inspired by the author’s community, where sheep and goats really do graze on islands off the coast, and a famous astronomer really did once visit. Great for use in STEM-themed programs, the story reminds that curiosity and dedication are at the heart of discovery, and that one is never too old to uncover the beauty of the natural world. Award-winning artist Veselina Tomova’s illustrations offer a delightfully whimsical complement to this charming story.
