    I loved this book. The idea of a goat whose mission in life is to help children is wonderful. In this story Mac lives with his Aunt Maddy and cousin Suzie. His mom is dead, he’s being bullied, and his dad is off somewhere on one of his trips. His dad is in Patagonia looking for the rare Terror Bird. Think of the raptors from “Jurassic Park” with beaks and you get the idea…. There are so many lessons that can be learned from this story. At the same time kids will love the story of hope and the wonderful pictures within its pages.

    Goat and the Terror Birds is an imaginative work of fantasy that targets middle schoolers. In this beautifully illustrated book, that brings to mind Grimm’s Fairy Tales, real-life issues that children confront everyday are at the heart of the story. Bullying, death of a family member, and how to handle grief are themes prevalent in the story.
