"A mad-cap caper about marching to the beat of your own drum… or hooves."
With fun illustrations by Rob Page, Amy The G.O.A.T - Greatest of all Time by Louiseee with three e's introduces up to 10 year-old Amy Bloomsy, outcast at school and at home and desperate to figure out who she is. When she’s dragged to a rehearsal of her mother’s circus club performance and she spots a Goat, she discovers a kinship she’s keen to explore.
With a cast of daft characters, from Ms Trudy-Wudy the P.E. teacher who barks at everyone to run while chomping on a selection of sweet treats to the sinister Headteacher Mrs Moopleton, who paints everyone who stands out at St Andrews School of Controlled Excellence & Unoriginality with grey paint, Amy embraces her inner goat despite the chaos it causes. She may face mean comments, and people telling her she’s wrong, but for Amy being a Goat is what makes her happy. Within this eccentric and funny story is the message of accepting yourself, trying new things to figure out who you are and marching to the beat of your own drum. I’d say Amy The G.O.A.T - Greatest of all Time is a good recommendation for readers aged 7+, it’s a story full of silliness and mayhem with a wholesome message at its heart.
