“A playful twist on outsmarting a predator. . . . The goats, all of whom have distinct personalities, deal with being kept on their toes by the chupacabra. As the title suggests, there is a lot of playful language throughout. . . . Aranda’s illustrations, which extend the text, elevate this title and burst with humor. Her bright pinks, yellows, and purples vibrate off the page in the often nighttime setting. The snaggle-toothed but adorable chupacabra sometimes lurks in the background, while other times his shadow comically dominates the page. . . . This enjoyable monster book is a first purchase for most libraries. Perfect for storytime read-alouds or anytime a humorously spooky tale is in order.”—School Library Journal
