A well written, easy to follow, fun filled children’s book. My five year old loved this story and was following intently as we read this book. The illustrations are well detailed and amazing as well. Great job. -Amazon Review
The case of the missing goats

But where is number seven? As Noah soon finds out, it’s not the only goat missing from his small, South African village. It seems there is a goat-napper on the loose!
But who is to blame? An angry crocodile, sneaky ostrich, or a leery leopard? It’s up to you to help Ripley and Brixton search the scene, find clues, and match the evidence to suspects before more goats vanish. The clock is ticking!
This interactive picture book includes educational facts about animals and a mysterious adventure that will keep kids hooked to the very last page.

Najib Abdi spent his childhood stalking cheetahs, swimming with hippos, and sleeping nestled amongst chimpanzees. At least, that’s how it felt every evening when David Attenborough flickered onto the TV screen in Najib’s cozy Croydon flat. From the urban streets of South London, young Najib would be transported to a Brazilian rainforest or African savannah. As a child who had emigrated from Somalia he was fascinated by different places and worlds, and the power of storytelling to expand perspectives.
Najib’s interactive picture books stoke curiosity, fuel enthusiasm, and encourage children to learn while playing detective. When he’s not working on his next story, Najib is creating puzzles for his niece and nephew and exploring their shared passion for the natural world.
Najib loves connecting with his readers.
