about


Solomon, nicknamed Moni, was a happy-go-lucky Swiss boy who had the best job in the world--- goat-boy to his home village. Every day he lead the goats up high on the mountain to graze. Sometimes the goats got into dangerous places, but he wasn't afraid to rescue them because he trusted in the Lord.
Things changed when Moni's friend Jörgli confides his intention to sell a valuable piece of jewelry he found. Moni protests that this isn't right, but Jörgli offers to save the life of Moni's favorite goat, who is destined to be butchered, in exchange for his silence.
Moni agrees, but he's no longer the happy goat boy he was. When he realizes he will no longer dare to go to the Lord for help if he needs to rescue a goat from danger in the mountain pasture, he realizes he must tell the truth even if it costs his favorite goat her life.
This is an excellent dramatic story for all ages. The Swiss Alps background is very charming. The Christian orientation that is a part of the story will please Christian readers but may offend those biased against that faith.
The author, Johanna Spyri, is also the author of the children's classic 'Heidi'.
