About The Goat

New York Public Library Best Books for Kids, Top 10 2017
New York Public Library Best Books for Kids 2017

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

"The convoluted, intricate tale is filled with joy, sweet sadness, and a triumph of spirit. Lovely." -- Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

"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

"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

"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

"An affectionate and quirky ode to Manhattan." -- Horn Book
