From the international bestselling author of Bel Canto and The Dutch House, Ann Patchett, and the bestselling illustrator of the Fancy Nancy series, Robin Preiss Glasser, comes a hilarious and heartwarming story about a goat who keeps getting all the blame, but ultimately teaches one family about the importance of honesty and owning up to your mistakes.

The Farmer family has a big problem! Every day their goat escapes, and every day, Mr. Farmer brings him back. So when things start to go awry on the farm, it must be the goat's fault.

Who's to blame when Mrs. Farmer's petunias are trampled?

Or when all the cupcakes for Archie's party disappear?

And when the whole bucket of paint is spilled?

Of course, everyone blames the goat! But is it really his fault?

Find out in this epic collaboration between Ann Patchett and Robin Preiss Glasser, who create this perfect picture book about telling the truth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this follow-up to Lambslide, Patchett and Glasser return to the Farmers' busy farm. This time, the focus is a happy-go-lucky unnamed goat who's a serial escapee...The lesson here, delivered with the lightest of touches, is serious and unmistakable: justice, and goat justice in particular, will prevail." -- Publishers Weekly
"...The visual jokes [are] made evident in Glasser's exuberant ink-and-watercolor cartoons. The humans, the animals, and the farm itself are delightfully represented. Humorous, engaging illustrations support an...amusing tale." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Patchett and Glasser follow up their first collaboration, Lambslide (2019), with another punny picture book...Readers will enjoy the silliness and the endearing illustrations from beloved Fancy Nancy (2005) illustrator Glasser, who truly captures the story's chaotic energy. A fun book for kids of all species." -- Booklist
