Description

Two best friends visit the state fair in this tale of courage and corn dogs
Billy and Goat are best friends, but they have different styles. Billy likes to smell the roses Goat likes to eat them So it's no surprise that they have different ideas of how to enjoy the state fair.
For Billy, the crowds and the noise are pretty intimidating. He's happy to wait in the livestock pens until the best-goat contest begins. But Goat's not one to sit when he could run. Faster than you can say butter sculpture, Goat's out of the pen and leading Billy on a merry chase past rides, games, contests, and exhibits. When Billy finally catches up to him on the biggest float of the parade he's relieved, but also amazed. The fair is awesome They may have missed Goat's chance to win best in show, but for Billy it's never been more clear his best friend is the best goat ever
