The Goat Lady by Jane Bregoli


The Goat Lady by Jane Bregoli

Two children and their mother, new to the neighborhood, befriend Noelie Houle, an elderly lady who raises goats.

Her other neighbors bemoan the goat lady's rundown house and barnyard animals, but the children see how she cares for her goats, they listen to her stories, and they come to love her.

For many years, Noelie provided goat's milk for people who needed it and sent her extra goat kids to poor people in poor countries through Heifer International.

The children's mother paints a series of paintings of The Goat Lady, and her art show at the local town hall helps the rest of the community see Noelie's kindness and courage.

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
