Critical Praise for The Goat of Many Colors:
This action- and wit-packed riff on the biblical story of Joseph’s coat uses a comics format to painlessly show how being different from one’s herd can be a challenge, a potential power, and a disguise. The bright artwork features a storytelling flamingo and a less-than-patient anteater as the visible and verbal audience to this lively and endearing morality tale within a morality tale. There is no heavyweight theology in this one, but lots of opportunity to discuss insights—as well as puns. — Francisca Goldsmith, Booklist
The Goat of Many Colors is an original interpretation of the well known Bible story of Joseph and the coat of many colors, rethought especially for kids. Narrated by a comic pair of animals, a yakky flamingo and an interrupting anteater, The Goat of Many Colors tells the tale of a diving goat with special gifts who finds his true calling in a herd of wild goats after being rejected because of his differentness by the regular herd. It’s a rollicking tale with a solid faith-reinforcing ending, and every page is crammed with humorous cartoons and funny puns and jokes. The Goat of Many Colors is sure to make kids want to read more Bible stories and be true to themselves and God just to see where all the laughs are coming from. — The Midwest Book Review
