THE WISDOM OF FRANK THE GOAT MAN is a parable about kindness, compassion, and the Universe, written for both teenagers and adults.
This wonderful tale follows the journey of a little girl called Emily, as seen through the eyes of her Shetland pony ‘Poppy’ who narrates the story. We are shown Emily’s fascinating encounters with a curiously alluring elderly Chinese neighbour, known simply as ‘Frank the goat man’. Frank, a Master Philosopher, thoroughly captivates Emily with his interesting and diverse conversations as they chat over their shared fence line when she rides past on Poppy each day.
When Emily reaches adulthood, she feels ‘off course and lost’. Here, the story takes an interesting twist, where after many years of absence Frank and Poppy reappear to help Emily find her way.
