The Goat by Anne Fleming

7 May 2018

The premise of this book is so improbable that you just have to delve into and see how this can possibly be. There’s a goat living on the roof of an eleven story building close to Central Park in New York City. The wonderful tenants who occupy the building and the effect on their lives of having a goat on the roof are a delight. There is depth in the final resolution which is very satisfying and left me laughing out loud. And oh yes you do find out how the goat got to be on the roof.

This book is fun. It would be a good one to read to children at bedtime. And most children who read it for themselves will be delighted with the story.
