Frank N' Goat by Jessica Watts is a morbidly sweet story of ever after friendship with a great lesson about lightning and kites. Frank is a monster that everyone hates, and Goat is a goat. Together, the two form a bond and become BFFs. That is, until Goat dies. Throughout the story, Watts fills the pages with simple, cartoon-like paintings filled to the brim with inside jokes (such as a bar called The Merry Shelley) that give the reader a look at Frank and Goat's adventures. Readers get to see how Frank and Goat spend their time together through pictures and witty words that even break through the fourth wall once or twice.

Why isn't this book a bestseller on shelves around the world? I laughed out loud at least three times and snickered at least a dozen times. As a writer, I'm jealous of her wit. As a story lover, I want Jessica Watts to become my best friend. She can be my Goat and I will keep her away from kites. Frank N' Goat is very morbid and silly, but I could still imagine reading it to kids. Not only would this book teach kids a fun lesson on friendship, but would also help them learn to understand humor and wit. Of course, these lessons would also help adults, just as it helped a goat and a monster. Frank N' Goat read like a children's book version of a Christopher Moore novel, and for that Jessica Watts is awesome.
