Georgiana


Dr. Goat

alternate cover

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I don't know anything about Georgiana, but I did find several titles by her, in addition to the sought-after Dr. Goat.  Like Dr. Goat, they are all Whitman Tell-a-Tales, afforable little books in the fifties that Whitman hoped would rival Little Golden Books.

LOGANBERRY LEGACY
I have so many requests for Dr. Goat, it's silly.  Part of the reason it's so hard to find is because it was a cheap book to begin with which children were allowed to destroy, and which parents threw out remorselessly.  But it's out there, if you're patient.

Hey, where's my favorite title?

Out-of-print books are harder to stock than new books, and some are hard to find, period.  If the title you are seeking is not listed for sale above, that probably means that I am currently out of stock.  However, I am always on the lookout for books, and will gladly quote you when I do find your coveted book. To add your name to my Wants Files, simply fill out a Book Request Form and I will e-mail you when I have a copy in stock.  Thanks.

SELECTED STUMPERS & REQUESTS
It was a small book. A childhood memory of my wife. Part of it went like this:  Dr. Goat put on his coat and went out to make some calls. He went to a house of a mouse with mumps, He cured a frog who had the jumps, etc., etc. My wife can quote most of it and we would love to have for our children. :-)

I would be interested in 1 to 3 of these books. Thanks for searching!

My grandmother used to read this to me all the time growing up, and I would love to have a copy for my children.

Hi.  I was given an assignment to find this book for my Bibliography and  Research class.  I'm so excited you know the first line! Thank you a million times over. You are helping me out on my Midterm.

My grandparents recently sold their house and moved to a nursing home. They dispersed their belongings throughout the family. Alas, Dr. Goat was gone before I could claim it. I can't believe how many people are familiar with this book. It was a treat just seeing the cover online.

This is one of my favorite books of all time!  My dad read it to me almost as much as the Tell-A-Tale version of the Three Bears!  Dr. G RULES!!!!

My mother read this book to me as a child and STILL can recite it to me word-for -word. I would love to have a copy to give her as a Christmas present!

This is my favorite all time book. When I was little I had everyone read it to me. I don't have any idea whatever happen to it. I think this started my love for goats. Please, if there's a copy out there somewhere I would love to buy one.

I absolutely LOVED this book as a child and can still recite most of it today (some 40 years later.) I've been looking for a copy since my first child was small, and she's almost 23, although not compulsively.  I'd give almost anything for a  decent copy.  I even had an artist friend try to "recreate' it for me, but nothing is as good as the original.  If you can get in touch with a copy for a reasonable price, please contact me.

My Mother and I were talking of childhood favorite books to read.  We recalled Dr. Goat...but we could not remember who wrote it.  I www.'ed and found out the worth of this book and we dug deep into our archives and found the old book.  Now we read it to my son and the other grandchildren of the family.  What a blessing that we do  have the copy.

I would love a copy of Doctor Goat. I am a visiting nurse now and I know Doctor Goat was my original inspiration. I loved it when his friends brushed his shabby old coat and swept his floor neat as a pin. Couldn't it be reprinted,  there is so much trashy stuff out there for kids now, we need Doctor Goat.

Dr. Goat.  I have my original copy from l950.  It is one of my favorite books. I'm usually very disorganized, but I know exactly where it is.

Georgiana, Dr. Goat.  Like the other comments I've read my mother read this book to me as a child.  When each of my three children were born she tried to find a copy of Dr. Goat.  Unfortunately, we didn't have home computers back then to help with the search.  My mother is gone now & my children are grown but I would love to have a copy for my 2 grandchildren. 

This could have been a Golden Book. I can recite the story almost completely by heart because I read it to my little brother so many times. LOL

I have looked everywhere for this book from my childhood. It began Dr. Goat put on his coat and went out to make some calls. He went to the house of a mouse with mumps and cured a frog who had the jumps. Please find one for me. 

Please help me find this book! My great aunt has been looking everywhere for it.

this was going for over $70 on eBay.  I would be happy with a photocopy.  My sister and I have forgotten most of it - we can rattle off the first couple pages.  One I still have is Mathilda, MacElroy and Mary, Whitman Tell a Tale, 1950.  It is in awful shape but still readable, not going to part with it.  Can you get copies or is there not a publisher willing to reprint some of these?

My sister had this book growing up and we loved it to pieces.  I really want to share it with my 7 children!

How funny that so many people remember and want this book! When I was about five (1963) my mother and I were visiting my grandmother in New Jersey, and we bought Dr. Goat at the grocery store. Within a day I becamed so terrified of the drawings (I particularly recall Dr. Goat looking in the mirror with his hooves up at his sore throat *shudder*) that my mother had to throw the book away and have me watch her put it in the outside trash can.  Soooo, that would be what happened to at least one copy of Dr. Goat, and having looked at your reproduced pages here, I'm satisfied--I don't need another!

Dr. Goat was a favourite book of mine when I was little. Fortunately I still have it in my possession. Have been reading it to my Grandson who is now two and I must say it is one of his favourites, and like myself when I was little it is being read over and over again.

Ditto, all the other comments about this book. My brother and I recite the text of this book to one another (it drives my husband crazy!) I have one very beat up copy minus the cover in a plastic bag. I have considered making colored photocopies of it. My question is, what would it take to get this book back in print?  I'd LOVE to get my hands on a decent copy of this book.

Just wanted to share the fact that I have been searching for Dr. Goat for my son who is now 42.  Dr. Goat's face seemed to frighten him--BIG TIME!  So it was really interesting that one of the writers expressed the same feelings.  In fact, I laughed out loud, (even after reading his/her comments the second time), because of insisting
her/his parent destroy the book. I am anxious to share your pages with him and let him know he was not the only child who was frightened of this goat with a very unusual face.

Georgiana , That Donkey, 1954.  No one understood "that donkey" had cold ears, until Laura came to live on the farm.  First, she made him a pair of brightly-colored mittens for his ears, but everyone laughed at him and made him sad.  So Laura made him a pair of brown ear-mittens, just the color of his own ears. 

Georgiana,  Dr. Goat.  I was surprised to see some other people whose lives were touched - negatively and positively! - by this story. My mom and dad used to read it to me every night. I do not know why I was so enamored with it, because some of the pictures in it are downright creepy. The Dr. himself is creepy! But I loved it. I still have a copy but it's missing a page or two.

Georgiana, Dr. Goat.  All of us kids were raised with the Dr. Goat book, I am not sure what happin to the one we had.  However I found one at an antique store.  I wish dad was here to enjoy it again.  I have read it to my Grand Kids, It is there favorite book.
