Publication Date: May 1, 2009
A fresh, funny ode to friendship and individuality, written by exciting new author Alicia Potter and illustrated by bestselling author-illustrator of TICKLE THE DUCK Ethan Long.
Fritz is just like every other mountain goat, except for one small difference: He likes to dance the fandango.
Unfortunately, Fritz finds himself the object of ridicule among the other goats, so he sets out to find a herd that will accept him. Along the way, he meets a yodeling sheep named Liesl and a glockenspiel-playing dog named Gerhard, both of whom are also looking for their places in the world. While Fritz never finds any other dancing mountain goats, he does find true friends (and willing dance partners) in Liesl and Gerhard.
