Dexter the Very Good Goat by Jean Malone, Jia Min Lin

Have you ever been around a goat?  Did you ever find a good one?  They're unique individual characters with their own odd personalities!

Schiffer and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can get a copy now.

Dexter has very long horns and is a bigger build than the other goats.  He's very proud of his looks.  He's also well behaved.  If someone grabs his horns and shakes his head, he might happen to butt them but that's in self-defense.  He has no bad behaviors but he has a fear.  He doesn't like having his hooves clipped!

When they arrive with the tools, he escapes and runs away.  They patiently go after him and eventually back him into corner.  They do his hooves (and it doesn't hurt at all) and then he's free to go.  Until next time he has to have it done again...

Ms. Jia Min Lin's illustrations are very sweet and Ms. Malone's tale matches that.  Why not have a visit with Dexter yourself?
