Angus the goat is a character in a children's chapter book catered for 7-12 year olds. I am looking for a full color book cover illustration with the option of future projects for the internal black and white illustrations.
Angus is farm goat with a humorous character who thinks of himself as the farm police. He takes his job seriously of keeping the animals in line. He is friendly and funny, always doing silly things. He believes he comes from Scottish royalty so he talks with a heavy Scottish accent. Angus loves apples, mid-day naps and gets into everyone else's business.
Zoe is an 8-year-old girl who is the animal whisperer and is the only one who can understand him. She has long blonde hair she wears in braids, has blue eyes and smiles all the time. She likes to wear farm shorts in bright colors (no hats).
The stories follow him meeting new animals and characters from Llamas, Hippos, Pigs, Ostriches, Horses, Cows and bugs. It is set in modern day on an active farm so the feel needs to be what we would see on a farm today.
The book project will be a series so the possibility is high for future projects.
Angus is from the Scottish clan Macleod and their traditional tartan pattern is yellow with black and red stripes. See example below.
