The Trouble with Goats and Sheep is an engaging historical fiction story that takes place in the 1970's. It's a long unseasonably hot summer in England. The cul-de-sac of the neighborhood the story takes place in is filled with quirky characters. The ten year old characters, Tilly and Grace, really make the story. They are hilarious in how they go about searching for their missing neighbor Mrs. Creasy. If you like an off beat story with fun characters and neighborhood dynamics, this story is for you.

I just loved this book from start to finish. Beautiful writing with insight into the herd mentality.
The primary characters are unfolded slowly throughout the story.

I found this quirky and amusing. The writing truly is gorgeous. Just stick with it, it's worth it.

I wanted to give this 5 stars because of her lovely way with words, but unfortunately the story was confusing and far too long. I was ready for it to end at 350pp but on and on it went.

The story is set in 1976 on The Avenue. The residents of The Avenue all have secrets of one sort or another. When Mrs. Creasy goes missing, rumours and long-held anxieties all come to the fore. At the bottom of all their anxiety is what happened at No. 11 back in 1967.
