About this title

Synopsis:

Farmer Cole and Farmer Jones each tend a large farm, and each farm is just next door to the other on the lonely prairie. Each farmer also owns a goat, and each farmer is afraid that his neighbor’s goat is coming into his farm and eating all his vegetables. So both Farmer Cole and Farmer Jones decide to build fences. They both want to protect their vegetables. That’s when the trouble starts. Both goats are very good at chewing through wooden fences . . . and at digging tunnels under brick walls . . . and even at jumping over very high fences. What can Farmer Cole and Farmer Jones do in order to keep both their goats and themselves happy? Here’s a beautifully color-illustrated story with a moral that every boy and girl will understand.
