Little Apple Goat is ordinary in every way ? except for one. Instead of munching on oats or grass or laundry left on the line, she prefers to eat fruit from the orchard.

But one stormy night, all of the fruit trees in the orchard are destroyed. The trunks are chopped down and the land is cleared. The farm animals cannot imagine life without the orchard, and Little Apple Goat doesn't know how she will manage without her fruit.

But time passes, and something mysterious begins to happen on the farm . . .

Sweet, colorful illustrations bring to life this clever tale that will charm young readers and also introduce them to the changing seasons.
