We were thrilled at The Family Grapevine to get our hands on a copy of AMY THE G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time), the debut book by Louiseee (with three e's).
Brilliantly illustrated by Rob Page, this heartwarming, uplifting and page ripping story (literally) is about being yourself. Or a Goat, or whoever you want really... it deals with issues of acceptance, conformity and not being afraid of being who you want to be.
Amy is 10 years old and lives with her 'unconventional' family, I say unconventional, however, what this fantastic book conveys is that unconventional doesn't really exist. Amy is unhappy at school and at home, but after being forced to attend her mum's circus performance rehearsal (on her birthday), she comes across a Goat.... and then the fun begins.
What follows is a hilarious and touching tale about what it means to find your inner G.O.A.T, to find true friendship and a sense of belonging.
With an evil head teacher, two school bullies, a moody brother, a step dad, a Mum who tries her best (despite it not always coming across that way), a herd of goats and a happy ending, it has pretty much everything, including an introduction to conversational French!
Aimed at the middle and upper primary school age group, the story is a genuine page turner and we loved it. Just try to resist eating each page after reading and shouting 'Mehhhhhhhh' . OR be a G.O.AT, eat each page after reading and shout 'Mehhhhhhh' as often as you like!
We’d definitely recommend getting your hooves on a copy!

About the Author
This book sees Louise with three eee’s fulfil her lifelong ambition to pen a children’s book. She commented: “After completing a masters in scriptwriting, I knew I wanted to pour all my spare time into penning stories for children. My two nieces, aged five and seven, read the manuscript and their feedback was incredible. They both loved the silliness of it all. At a time when everything in society is under the microscope, I enjoy writing stories that reflect topical debates and my view on reality. Amy the G.O.A.T is a playful exploration of a serious subject that will hopefully offer insight into the knotty world of identity.”
The book is available as a paperback and Kindle e-book on Amazon from April 28th. To order your copy use the link below.
