Everyone’s favourite goat, Gertrude Allawishes, is back! School’s out for the summer, and Starr and her family—even Gertrude—are heading to their cottage. Starr’s mom is worried Gertrude will get into trouble, but it isn’t long before Gertrude proves she is one loyal goat and saves the day.

A portion of the author’s royalties from Gertrude at the Beach will be donated directly to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.

CM Magazine - April 17, 2015
"An interesting and fun summertime picture book and is a worthy purchase for home, school, and public libraries."
