NANETTE by Mircille & Artur Marokvia
Kirkus Star


Email this review


In the chateau country of France lives Ann with her mother, her father and her baby brother, who for want of goat's milk, is ailing. Nanette, a particularly beautiful goat, is enlisted to save the baby, and, having effected the cure, remains as a pet on Ann's farm. This extraordinary goat's resemblance to a deer almost costs her her life until Ann goes to work and with Nanette reverses the whole order of events in the orderly community. Both the text and the illustrations of Artur Marokvia evoke an inviting picture of the French countryside and of the winsomeness of the generous Nanette.
