PreSchool-Grade 1—On Zook's farm, a naughty goat steals a hat from a horse, watermelon from the pigs, straw from a cow, then a dress and pie from Mrs. Zook. Everyone is quite annoyed, assuming Tucker has been a typical goat and eaten everything. At the end, however, they see that he has dexterously used the items to create a scarecrow to protect his beloved corn in the field. The title refrain will keep audiences engaged, and sharp eyes will catch details such as Tucker's modification of the "don't feed the goat" sign to his advantage. Van Patter's digital illustrations are brimming with action and expression amid simple scenes, though some backgrounds seem smeared and the pinks are somewhat garish. It also seems odd that the cover features three grumpy pigs, rather than the star of the tale.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
