Gorgeously fun pictures make this silly story about neurotic goats dealing with their possibly homicidal neighbor such a joy to look at and to read to kids!

— Robin at Santa Clara


With its hilarious dialogue, trio of bumbling goats, and fantastically zany villain, this unique, laugh-out-loud story based on a legendary monster is sure to crack up kids and grown-ups alike.
Like most goats, Jayna, Bumsie, and Pep's greatest fear is being eaten for dinner by the legendary chupacabra--it's common knowledge that goats are a chupacabra's favorite food One night, tired of living in fear, the impetuous goats whip out their trusty candelabra and head off to find the beast and scare it away before it can find them. Little do they know that candelabras are the chupacabra's third-favorite food . . . and he isn't about to stop there. This chupacabra has quite the appetite, and the goats are in for a big surprise.
