Meet the Author

Mitchell Sharmat and his wife, the popular children's book author, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, live in Tucson, Arizona, a setting which inspired Mr. Sharmat's first book, Reddy Rattler and Easy Eagle. He says that the idea for this new story was planted while on vacation years ago, when a young goat started nibbling on this son's coat.

I adore this book. It tells how to compromise with food choice and how you need a lot of different things.

We picked this book up from our public library. This is one of my favorite books growing up. I found it bothersome now as a parent than when I was younger of course the background for the story. Being as you have goat who wants to eat healthy but then is told you have to eat other things instead of healthy food. But I would still give this book a 5 star rating. You have Gregory who is not your ordinary goat he rather eat healthy than junk. But of course that is what a goat eats, junk.  My son loved how Gregory got a tummy ache from eating to much junk food, especially since I push that with him. I always tell him too much junk makes your tummy get bigger. I enjoyed the ending where not only did they eat wax paper for breakfast but they did have eggs and orange juice. So in a way Gregory did eat a bit healthy. This book is a perfect read for those picky eaters that we call children, they get to read about a goat who is just as picky. We get to see what happens when Gregory eats like a pig and his ending result. I would say this book is good for ages 4 maybe 5 on up.  The illustrations were awesomely drawn. Overall a perfect read for the younger children. I do believe this is one book I will be adding to our growing library here at home. It is one of those books you just have to have because it is a classic.

I brought this once to read to my little 3 y.o. friend at the pool club once, and she loves it! She keeps on borrowing it (She has it right now) and when ever I goto the pool, she asks me if I brought the goat book!
