“The Trouble with Goats & Sheep” by Joanna Cannon

January 16, 2017

 “Set during the heatwave of 1976 “The Trouble with Goats and Sheep” follows ten-year-old Grace and her friend Tilly who decide that finding God will reveal what has happened to the missing Mrs Creasy from their street. This book provoked mixed responses from the group. Some readers liked the style of writing, the humour, & enjoyed the references to the 1970s although others felt that these were somewhat overdone. Some of the group enjoyed parts of the book better than others or felt that the ending was weak or that the book was too long, so that whilst there were no very low scores there were few very high ones either”. Average score 7.15
