What the Fans are saying…
Impressive! Lots of great facts about animal behavior told from a kid’s point of view. The humor throughout the story is great - increases the kid appeal.
I enjoyed the book and so did my six-year-old! I appreciate the basic premise and believe it has an appeal to readers in a wide range of ages.
I loved the stories of the rascals. Very enjoyable and interesting reading. The introduction to the goat is great, and the reason for naming him ‘Gus’ is hilarious. I also liked the debunking of erroneous information about the farm animals.
A skillful job of blending two questions of most children:
1. What happens to animals who are left behind or abused?
2. Is what I’ve heard about farm animal behavior really true?
Boone and Rosa satisfy their curiosity in both areas as they volunteer at a sanctuary farm. The fact-filled stories are interesting and often amusing. Dialog is lively and realistic.
I love this book! I like why the goat is named Gus. And I like the illustrations. (Yes. This five-year-old actually used that word.) You can count the times you see the cat.
