A fairy tale in the traditional form. The goat may be out of Disney. It has true evil and true good and lots of interesting characters. So much fun.

Cute book 😊 Haven't read Kate DiCamillo in a long time but she's still just as charming. Buddy read with @Blueberry 😁

Blueberry I have found she's a feel-good writer for me. 💜 7mo

So glad this was donated to my library. New books are so rare when your budget is minimal. If your kids have a library at their school, and you can afford to buy books, please donate. If they don't have a library, teachers will appreciate the gifts for their classroom. Spread the love!

DiCamillo really has the intersection of classic fairy tale and Brene Brown all sewn up. #audiostitching

Kate DiCamillo is the best. This middle grade medieval tale has some fantastical twists, but is so affirming of the strength that lies within all of us. And of love. And, hilariously, the unexpected power of goats. Great for shy, reticent kids and for world-weary adults.

KellyK I ❤️ her books! 9mo

Heartwarming middle grade novel about the power of love and stories. Gorgeous illustrations. Would make a great read-aloud.

I am a big DiCamillo fan, so I couldn‘t pass this up. A different style of writing, but it suits the story. Answelica the goat is a treasure! The ending was not quite up to par, but it could just be me. Not as good as my favorite (“The Tiger Rising”), but a good tale.

Bravery, loyalty, and belief in oneself; the wonder of being known and loved by others for who you truly are. Two courageous children and a ferocious goat learn that there‘s no limit to what the heart can hold in this reassuring fable. Age 8-up

BookDadGirlDad My kids love Kate DiCamillo. My 8 yo just got this book. 9mo

I received an ARC through LibraryThing in exchange for a review.

I like stories with strong female leads. I like medieval (or, in this case, pseudo-medieval) settings. Beatrice is an important name in our family. Several friends read this story before me and loved it. For all those reasons I wanted to read this book and expected to enjoy it but it was just middling for me. Blackall's illustrations were good. ⬇️

bibliothecarivs I admit that I am not the target audience for this book since I am an adult. I still plan to give a copy to our daughter who will, I hope, enjoy it. (edited) 9mo

Last week I acted as tech support for Imagination Friday with Kate DiCamillo & Sophie Blackall. They encouraged us to create an illuminated letter, O. My story will begin with the word “Octopus.” I‘m an obvious natural talent. You can watch their presentation here:

The first chapters utterly charmed me with the style of writing and the world Kate created. The illustrations and the construction of the book are also charming. There is a lot of darkness in the book which the characters must deal with, and this affected me. It was a bit heavy for me in that regard—the sadness in the world. The themes of love, friendship, self-knowledge, courage, and the power of story are beautifully rendered.

LeslieO Just finished this one. Very sweet. I love the goat! 11mo

Working on a Sunday is not so bad! Especially when a hold you are SUPER excited about comes in! 😍 The Tale of Desperaux is my FAVORITE childrens book of all time, and I've been a huge fan of Kate DiCamillo ever since I first read it, so I can't wait to start this, her newest book! 💕📚💕

This was the first book I‘ve read by middle grade lit icon Kate DiCamillo! Set in a medieval time and place, this warmly-narrated audiobook is full of huggable characters and the power of love and story to conquer injustice and greed. Answelica the hard-headed goat by far steals the show, however!

Kate DiCamillo just keeps writing perfect books. This one reads like a gentle folktale featuring a trio of endearing characters (actually it‘s more of a foursome if you count the goat!) embroiled in intrigue and deception in a kingdom, far, far away. This would make a lovely classroom read-aloud and could spark some discussion about equity in education. Highly recommended.

I am crying over how perfect this book is. It hooked me with the hilariously terrifying goat (“Answelica was a goat with teeth that were the mirror of her soul — large, sharp, and uncompromising”) and tricked me into big feelings.
Pretend you‘re getting it for your child, niece, nephew if you feel too old for a kids‘ book, but read it before you pass it to someone the ‘right‘ age - you won‘t regret it. #ARC
