Escape Goat

We rated this book:


There is a goat who behaves like most goats do. He lives in a pen on a farm. He plays with the chickens and sleeps on a bed of hay. After a while, he grows curious about the world outside of his pen, so he decides to escape. He visits the other farm animals and eats from Mrs. Farmer’s garden. But when Mrs. Farmers petunias are ruined, the children blame the goat. Each day, the goat escapes and each day, the goat is blamed for some mischief that occurs on the farm. Mr. Farmer tries to keep the goat locked in his pen, but the goat always finds a way to escape. Only little Nicolette sees what the others don’t: that the goat may not be the one to blame after all.

Escape Goat does more than give young readers a humorous play on words. Nicolette’s perspective mirrors the reader’s as she figures out what is truly going on and tries to stick up for the goat. Glasser’s bright and detailed watercolors are delightful and fun and add to the richness of the story.
