I need help identifying a children’s book I had back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. It was about a farmer who had a goat (maybe a dog) and he bought a bag of food. The goat/animal at all the food and became sick and bloated. The animal just couldn’t help himself. The goat ended up learning a lesson. This is not the Greedy Goat or Gregory the terrible eater. I remember the book having more claymation type of photos.

Sunny the Greedy Goat Learns the Value of Self-Control by Ethel Barrett looks like possibility:

A greedy little goat learns to control himself after suffering the ill effects of an eating binge.

The above summary is quoted from the book's entry at WorldCat.

There are few images available Chinese website 258sd.com.

  • Yes! This is the exact book I’ve been looking for, thank you!!
