Googoo Moogoo is the nickname of a little girl, Cornelia. Googoo Moogoo is a cheerful little girl. However, she has one problem – she does not like to pick up her toys and put them in place. “I am not a toy picker-upper”, announces Cornelia. Unexpectedly, her toys are taken away by Elf the Mess. Googoo Moogoo has to accomplish three things before she can get her toys back. She gets her toys back, but then Elf the Mess turns his attention to her dad’s things… Lina Žutautė’s illustrations and text supplement each other and create an unobtrusively didactic story for preschoolers.
