About the Book

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 children's story about a scapegoat who escapes blame just in time.

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.
