Billy Whiskers: The Autobiography of a Goat Reviews
HILARIOUS! If you have goats or love goats or even if you despise goats, you must read this book. My daughter (9 yo) reads parts of it over and over and can never keep a straight face. What an accurate portrayal of goat mischief!
Oh that Billy Whiskers!I'm afraid if I don't give it five stars, Billy might ram down my door and hook me just like he did to about the half the characters in the book. I'm not saying those guys didn't deserve it, but...
Doesn't hold up very well over time. Feels very "and then, and then, and then" when really its just the same old scenario that Billy keeps getting into again and again. Might be good to read aloud to young listeners as individual stories but not presented as a chapter book. Definitely some silly stuff youngsters will enjoy but overall just feels way to long. Would really be more fun re-printed as a picture book.
This is a really cute book, highly enjoyable, especially for goat lovers. Each chapter is a short story in itself that stands alone for a quick read, perhaps a bedtime story. Although seemingly directed at children, it holds charm and old-fashioned quaint ways and illustrations that will delight adults as well.
I had a few of these books as a child (I think my father had had them as a boy in the 20's) and thought that they were hilarious. My son (8) thinks they're a hoot, too.
