Product description


Kid’s adjustment to New York City, her time in museums, and the warm and unusual neighbors make for a lively yet tender story. (Publishers Weekly 2016-12-19)

The convoluted, intricate tale is filled with joy, sweet sadness, and a triumph of spirit. Lovely. (Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW 2017-01-15)

With delicate insight and humor, Fleming cleverly unites people ― and goats ― from vastly different walks of life in an offbeat celebration of courage and individuality. (Booklist, STARRED REVIEW 2017-02-15)

The list of characters is long, and eccentricities abound, but so do charm and warm humor. Perfect for tweens who prefer quiet, character-driven novels and fans of E.L. Konigsburg. (School Library Journal 2017-02-01)

A quirky, riotous story that uses a preposterous conceit to deftly veil much deeper issues and themes. (Quill & Quire, STARRED REVIEW 2017-03-01)

The Goat takes a concept easiest told as zany and madcap, but isntead wisely presents it as perfectly ordinary. If Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach made a kids' movie … this would certainly be their script. (National Post 2017-02-28)

At turns funny and affecting, this [is an] ingeniously knitted ensemble piece for 9- to 12-year-olds. (The Wall Street Journal 2017-03-10)

An affectionate and quirky ode to Manhattan. (Horn Book 2017-05-01)
