y name is Tucker and I am a goat. You may have heard that goats will eat just about anything and that's certainly true. But, what I really love is fresh corn. I live on a farm owned by Mrs. Zook and I can hardly wait until the corn crop is ready.
n this picture book you'll see that while I was waiting for the corn to reach harvest time, I began taking things from the other animals. I snatched a straw hat from the horse, a watermelon from the pigs, and some hay from the cow's feeder.
even took Mrs. Zook's best sundress that was drying on the wash line, and I snatched a pie she had just made. Mrs. Zook was not a happy camper and she said, '
I can see we're all Tuckered out!
he also followed me out into the corn field to see what I was doing with all the things I took. Boy, can I tell you, she was really surprised to see what I did with everything.
ow Iím not going to tell you what I did. You'll just have to read my picture book to find out. Children four or five and older will like my story and they (and their parents) will certainly be surprised by how this book ends!
