Mr. Goose was created and originally written by Grant Kennedy of KRisk ltd. during lockdown for his own children and tells the story of a loveable character called Mr Goose and teaches little ones the importance of taking risks and developing personal resilience.
The book was beautifully illustrated by artist Louise McBride capturing the local environment and bringing the characters to life, and has recently evolved into a musical album composed by Craig Espie of Skerryvore and featuring some of Scotlands most talented traditional musicians.
It is also accompanied by a host of educational resources and its teaching was piloted at Doonfoot Primary in South Ayrshire earlier this year before being rolled out to primary 1- 5 classes in schools across Ayrshire.
Set on the River Doon, near the famous Burns’ Cottage, this children’s book is an endearing story about personal risk and resilience. Plunge into the absorbing adventure and get to know the unforgettable characters who live on the river…
Let Mr. Goose take you on his adventures; from making the decision to change his direction in life, to the challenges he faces along the way. He encounters many ups and downs, from severe weather and unfriendly animals to making new friends and finding a place to call home.
