Description


Meet Goat Girl and Merle: an irresistible pair of characters who show young readers that the best friendships are built on more than first impressions.

Goat Girl—an adventurous goat—lives on Humdrum Farm, a place where everything is ordinary, and she's looking for some excitement . When she meets Merle—a bull—she mistakes him for a cowboy since he’s both a cow and a boy. Cowboys aren’t ordinary so Goat Girl can’t wait to introduce herself. 

“HOWDY COWBOY!"

An annoyed Merle insists he's not a cowboy.

But will this not-a-cowboy change his mind when his rootin’-tootin’ dream has a chance to come true?

Saddle up and find out in this hilarious, rollicking unlikely friendship story perfect for fans of Jory John’s Goodnight Already!, Ryan T. Higgins’s Mother Bruce, and Suzanne Lang’s Grumpy Monkey.

Praise For…


Barrington’s debut is a fun farm fable with softly modeled cartoons that are full of zip (well, at least when Goat Girl is around) and expressive (mostly expressing boredom) creatures. Little listeners, who’ll be anything but bored, will likely hope for further Goat Girl and Cow Boy adventures. This chipper tale of an unlikely farm friendship is sure to bring a smile. 
Kirkus Reviews

A great lesson in individuality delivered in a charming fashion. This picture book debut is a must have for all collections.
