Another hilarious picture book from Lambslide creators, Ann Patchett and Robin Preiss Glasser, follows a plucky goat who continuously escapes the pen and gets blamed for mischief.

The Farmer family owns a curious goat who keeps escaping from its pen. Each and every time the goat escapes, something around the farm goes wrong, and Mr. Farmer raises the gate higher.

However, Nicolette notices that the “escape goat” is really being used as a scapegoat by the rest of the Farmer family, taking the blame for everyone else’s mischief. In her signature clever way, it is up to Nicolette to convince Mr. Farmer of the goat’s innocence.
