Gappers are many-eyed creatures who, if not taken care of, will cover goats and they will no longer yield milk. In this modern morality tale a little girl called Capable and her father find that Gappers have gotten their goat. Can they find a solution?

A gapper is a bit of a ‘burr’ but it is a dangerous thing. When it attaches itself to the goats the goats become very unhappy and even stop giving milk. There is nothing gappers like more than goats and nothing goats hate more than gappers. When gappers get your goats it means trouble. In one small town gappers are a real pest and it takes the ingenious approach of Capable to find a soution – if a solution exists at all.
