Description


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.

The Novice may seem like the traditional hero fantasy adventure book, but is far more complex and full of many more charachters (good and bad) which contribute to the fast and rocky plot full of pot holes. The traditional hero part of this story attracts many readers while the excellent story telling by Matharu leaves us wanting mroe. - Kaitlyn, customer age 12
