Ages 4 to 8 years. Hilda is a very loyal goat and Ruble Cole's best friend. He doesn't even mind that she has bestowed upon him a girl's name. If she likes it, he likes it, too. After all, he's a very loyal goat. But even a loyal goat can get into trouble sometimes. Hilda starts off his day off on the wrong hoof when he tries to wake up Ruble and unwittingly creates chaos. Then when he decides to follow Ruble to school, things get even worse. All of Hilda's good intentions seem to go awry and nearly everyone in the Cole family calls him 'meddlesome'! All of this causes Hilda to wonder: Is he really a loyal goat? Or is he as meddlesome as they say? It's a day of adventure -- and ups and downs -- for Hilda, a very loyal goat. A picture book for young readers with over 60 colourful illustrations.
