Defeat the Goats
The Willowbee children climb out of an ancient olive tree to meet a gathering of wild boars who are gearing up for a battle. The boars talk of the goats — their bitter enemies — and describe how weak, mean, and silly they are. Upon further investigation, however, the Willowbees learn that none of the boars have ever actually met a goat. Everything they know about goats comes from stories and tall tales. Piper, drawing on a similar experience she was having at school, encourages them to meet a goat and see for themselves.
